Catherine Howard.

Catherine Howard was Henry VIII firth wife. She married him at a very young age, 17 give or take, she was beheaded around the age of 19 for adultery. The accusations made against Catherine Howard were actually true, being married at such a young age, she did not understand the responsibility and duties of being a queen and was therefore immature. It is believed she did not know what she was doing, but she still met a grim end. She had no children by Henry VIII.
