British history is very rich in amazing and unusual facts that are remembered after hundreds of years and still fascinate people from all over the world. I am especially interested in the Golden Age of the British Empire, with Elizabeth and Henry VIII. Of course the political accomplishments of the two, especially of the latter are very well completed by their unusual personal love lives.
Henry VIII is now better remembered for his six wives and the fact that he decapitated most of them rather than for his accomplishments as a king. That is the source of inspiration for the Henry VIII and Disappearing Wives Mug you can admire in the pictures here.
