  • Inspired by Henry VIII’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon, this decoration would add majestic elegance to any Christmas tree.
    The highly decorative figure is adorned with pearl and gold finish beads and sparkly gold thread to give a regal appearance.
    Catherine of Aragon (1485 – 1536) was Queen of England from 1509 until 1533, as the first wife of King Henry VIII. Unable to produce a male heir, Catherine’s marriage to Henry began to sour and Henry began pursuing her lady-in-waiting, Anne Boleyn. In 1527 Henry, still desperate for a son, asked the Pope for an annulment of his marriage so he could marry his new mistress. For seven years the Pope refused to annul their marriage, as he was afraid of angering Catherine's nephew, the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V. With Anne Boleyn already pregnant with his child the couple wed in secret in 1533. He then passed the Act of Supremacy, declaring that he was the head of the English church, and appointed Thomas Cranmer as Archbishop of Canterbury, who annulled Henry’s marriage to Catherine.
    Not to be given to children under 36 months.
    St. Nicolas specialises in bespoke Christmas decorations and fabric gifts. All the decorations are handmade, and the time taken to make each one is reflected in their unique quality. For 25 years they have worked with a small Christian charity in Thailand that helps disadvantaged rural women find work in their community, rather than being forced to leave home to work in a factory. All the historical figure decorations are made in this way.
