Henry called Catherine Howard his "Rose Without a Thorn". Catherine married Henry VIII on 28 July 1540, at Oatlands Palace, in Surrey, almost immediately after the annulment of his marriage to Anne of Cleves was arranged.

Catherine was the third of Henry's consorts to have been a member of the English gentry.
