Hampton Court Palace

Recently, I went to the Hampton Court Palace with my friend Aaron. I became a member of the Royal Historic Palaces,which includes entry to all the grand palaces in London,plus the privilege of being invited to events unbeknownst to the public.The Five Great Royal Palaces are Kensington Palace,Tower of London, Banqueting House,Kew Gardens, and Hampton Court Palace.

Hampton Court Palace,was the home of Henry VIII, and his six wives, that’s right, six wives. King Henry VIII was desperate to get an heir for throne, so he fought tooth and nail to get a proper wife to bear him the proper male heir. Since, in those times it was deemed that only men could rule properly. The irony of it all, was that his daughter, Elizabeth ended up being the finest and most powerful monarch. England prospered and became very powerful and rich under her reign. Unfortunately, her mother Anne Boleyn was beheaded.
