Editor says, what if (triple POD) Henry VIII had been killed in his jousting accident while still married to his first wife Catherine of Aragon because son Henry Junior had survived childhood?

Editor says, in this post we change a single POD on the Discussion BoardsWhat if Henry VIII of England had died after falling from his horse in January 1536 into a double POD (the continued marriage to Catherine is justified by the survival of their son Henry). In reality Henry VIII survived the accident but was fundamentally changed by the serious injuries he endured. The Independent newspaper reports ~ He became estranged from the second of his six wives, Anne Boleyn - the king, once sporty and generous, became cruel, vicious and paranoid, his subjects began talking about him in a new way, and the turnover of his wives speeded up.
