Queen of Coins

This is Henry VIII’s final wife, Catherine Parr. She was close to all three of Henry’s children and assumed responsibility for Edward and Elizabeth’s education, as well as ruling as regent in Henry’s absence. She was also influential in Henry passing the act that restored his daughters to the line of succession, allowing them both to take their place on the throne.

Although she only had one child of her own, a daughter with Sir Thomas Seymour, and didn’t live long after the child’s birth, she embodies the qualities of the Queen of Coins in being practical, homely, nurturing and down to earth.
