This topic is a bit self-reflective, with just a hint of narcissism to keep things intersting. What Wife do you resemble does not limit itself to physical traits. It could include personality, personal experience, etc. For the guys on the board, since you won't want to see yourself as women, which Tudor male do you represent?
Physically (body type): Anne of Cleves (overweight, with a round face; pretty, in some opinions)
Physically (colouration): Anne Boleyn (dark brown/black hair and dark brown/black eyes: my best feature, so I've been told)
Personality: Anne of Cleves (shy and slightly withdrawn); Anne Boleyn (temper and sense of humor)
Education: KOA, Anne Boleyn, and Katherine Parr (educated: Master's degree, working towards a PhD, with a love of debating the finer points of Tudor history and anthropology. I lack their religious convictions, though.)
Marital Status: Anne of Cleves (single, the perpetual bachelorette. Okay, I know she was married for a short time, but she comes the closest).
Conclusion: If I met the wives, I would be in awe of Anne Boleyn, but probably closest to Anne of Cleves.
"By daily proof you shall find me to be to you both loving and kind" Anne Boleyn

What a great question! Hmm, I'll have to think about this…
Okay, here goes –
Physically: Katherine Howard. She was short and “plump”, right?!
Colouring: Probably most like Anne Boleyn with a bit of Katherine Howard. I've got olive skin but with brown hair and green eyes.
Personality: As much as it pains me to say it, probably Jane Seymour. Shy but pretty even tempered on the outside, but with an inner strength probably most people never get to see, like her. Also I like to think I've got Anne of Cleves's good sense!
Education: Catherine Parr. I never went to university/college but I value education and am always hungry to learn more. Pretty much everything I know about the Tudors and history in general I've learned by myself, a lot through just traveling. I like to think Catherine understood that learning is a lifelong process and doesn't (certainly shouldn't at any rate) end as soon as you leave university.
Marital Status: Anne of Cleves. Perpetual bachelorette sums it up perfectly!
So I don't know what all that makes me, probably a mixture of all of them except for Catherine of Aragon. Though she had qualities I can identify with too.

Physically….Probably Anne….I'm 5' 1″. Small bone structure and thin. I have a very tiny neck. Olive skin. long dark brown/black hair. I have dark brown eyes, and people tell me they speak volumes. Considered black by my friends/family and they say if looks could kill, my eyes would. Quite expressive.
Personality…Anne again…I am stubborn and hot tempered. I love to laugh and dance. I love reading and learning. If I know I am right, I fight to win. I am always willing to listen to other opinions, of course. I can be very sarcastic. I say what is on my mind.
Education…Catherine Parr and Anne…I'm not sure who I resemble in this category. I am self-taught. I love reading. I love to travel to new places and learn about different cultures.
Marital status…..married 34 years. None of them apply.
religion….I lack their belief in an organized religion, but i have my beliefs and I follow my own path. Quite stubbornly. Isn't that what all of them did in their own way?

Physically (body type): Maybe Jane Seymour. I'm 5'5″ , not very plump, but not very thin.
Physically (colouration): Anne Boleyn. Dark hair, same face shape, but my eyes are blue.
Personality: Catherine of Aragon. Trusting, intelligent (I hope so!), not very loud.
Education: I'm still at high school, so I think Anne Boleyn or Katherine Parr.
Marital Status: Single. Catherine of Aragon (until her marriage, she didn't have many affairs, I think).
Conclusion: Mix of Catherine and Anne.
September 1, 2010
Physically (body type): Anne of Cleves, not too slim and tall ( i think Anne was tall wasn't she?)
Physically (colouration): Anne Boleyn Black hair, black eyes and wide mouth.
Personality: Anne Boleyn, tempered, funny, party girl, and sometimes i little bit bad girl( epsecially in sense of humor)
Education: i think mostly COA,Anne and CP(my three fav o/)
Marital Status: Anne of Cleves
Conclusion: i think more of Anne Boleyn and anne of cleves + Catherine Parr and Catherine of Aragon.

Physically (body type): Anne of Cleves (medium height, overweight, round-faced, moderately pretty)
Physically (colouration): Catherine Howard (reddish-brown hair, dark brown eyes, fair complexion)
Personality: Anne of Cleves (shy and slightly withdrawn), Catherine of Aragon (trusting, intelligent, stubborn, devoutly Catholic)
Education: COA, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Parr (I have a BA in Liberal Studies with minors in History and Latin American Studies and was forced to leave grad school — concurent Master’s degree programs in Latin American Studies and Library and Information Studies — due to illness. Nevertheless, I keep on absorbing new information and occupy myself by writing historical fiction)
Marital status: Anne of Cleves (of course! I am the perpetual bachelorette)
Conclusion: Like Duchess of Brittany, I would be in awe of Anne Boleyn. I would probably revere COA as a saint, as well as enjoy discussing literature and religion with Catherine Parr. Nevertheless, my closest resemblance would be to Anne of Cleves.
Yours as long as lyffe endures, Katheryn

Physically(body type):I guess Jane Seymour/Kathryn Howard.Small stature(you can call me short),neither plump but neither slim enough(I’m trying to lose weight though)
Physically(colouration):Anne Boleyn.I have a mediterranean complexion,big dark eyes,long dark hair,oval face,straight nose.Although lately I have my hair colored light auburn(does that mean now my looks can include Katherine of Aragone or Katherine Howard?)
Personality:I think I share a few things with all the wives.Like Katherine of Aragone,I don’t give up my beliefs.With Anne:I am also quite ambitious,I support new ideas,have sometimes a bad temper(sometimes,like Anne,I say things that only make things worse while I don’t mean them),I love fashion,music,dancing.Also(guiltily)I admit that I do enjoy being in the center of attention(kind of like Katherine Howard too).Also,like Anne and Catherine Parr,I support and try to follow their example of trying to improve themselves,always exercising the mind.Like Jane Seymour,sometimes I keep my opinion to myself and try to win my fights with strategy.And like Howard,sometimes I’m too trusting,too romantic at heart.
Education:Hm,I guess I have the best possible education for my age and a broad interest in learning.I have a love for art,theater and literature.The subject of my studies is focused on communication and public relations.I’m an over-achiever and my dream is anything related to theater!So I guess I am an Anne Boleyn,due to my artistic views,my love for learning and my abilities and love for socializing
Marital status:Well,I am not married and I don’t see me getting married any time soon(does that make me Jane Seymour?).Although as a single I love flirting(and as an over romantic I love quiet flirting,kind of resembling courtly love)so I guess at this I resemble Anne
Conclusion:I guess I don’t have many in common with CoA but she haves my deep respect and admiration.Anne?I share a lot with her but I am not like her in the way that I am not so persistent nor I have the magnetism she had.Jane?Not really.AoC?I guess I wish I had her strength and grace(I wouldn’t take it so kindly everyone calling me a horse and blaming me for THEIR problems(can you hear me Henry?)KH?We share the same happy go lucky personality but I am a thinker and I would never anyone use me like that.CP is the closest to me.A thinker,a diplomat who speaks her mind,someone who tries to be usefull in all she does.So,I am closer to AB and CP,but I am not exactly like them
August 12, 2009
AoC? I guess I wish I had her strength and grace (I wouldn’t take it so kindly everyone calling me a horse and blaming me for THEIR problems (can you hear me, Henry?)
This? Is fantastic. Thanks for the laugh. (Yes, fat boy, we’re laughing at you!)

Physically (colouration): My eyes are brown like Anne’s and my skin is olive like hers as well, but my hair is dark blonde, which doesn’t fit any of these Tudor Queens from what I have read.
Personality: I am very opinionated, strong willed, and out-going, so again I believe I am more like Anne Boleyn, however, I do see aspects of Katherine Parr in my personality. She had great conviction and advocated passionately, however, when her back was against the wall she knew how to play the game in my opinion.
Education: Anne Boleyn and Katherine Parr, for I have a BA in Psychology and am currently studing for my Masters. I am a firm believer in education and always strive for knowledge, have it be in a University setting or independently.
Status: I suppose I would be more like Anne of Cleves in this department considering I have yet to reliquish my favours to a husband, but I have had divers suitors
Conclusion: I believe meeting Anne Boleyn would be the most thrilling experience of my life. There is so much I would love ask her…To hear her story… in her own words would be deeply meaningful for me. I would also adore meeting Katherine Parr, Anne Cleves, and Katherine of Aragon…Kitty never did much for me though, so I could go without meeting her.

Physically-I have brown hair and brown eyes, olive fair skin, skinny body type, 5 feet tall
Personality-I am creative, and feisty at times. I go with the flow and am open to new things/experiences, I love to laugh and have a good sense or humor. I can be bitchy at times though. Ha
Education: College level-love the arts.
Martial Status-I am not married.
Conclusion:Physically and Personality Education I am Anne Boleyn. Education I am also Catherine of Aragon. Marital Status I am Anne of Cleeves
October 12, 2010
Physically (body type): Probably Anne Boleyn, middling stature, not too skinny, not plump. Just kind of in the middle somewhere!
Physically (colouration): I’m not sure…. I’m extremely pale with blue eyes and dark brown (nearly black) hair. I don’t think my colouration matches any of the wives!
Personality: A little bit of Anne Boleyn, and a bit of Katherine Howard. I have one hell of a temper, but otherwise I’m very cheerful and some could probably say flighty. When I’m not losing my temper I’m usually off having fun.
Education: Catherine Parr. I didn’t go to university, but I am passionate about learning.
Marital Status: Katherine Howard pre-Henry? I’m in a long term, committed relationship, with marriage in the future, but not right now.
Conclusion: Probably more Katherine Howard than anyone else. Doesn’t bode well for me all things considered!

Physically. KoA, short stout, greying ginger hair.
Personality…hmm..short temper, highly strung at times…make me kinda AB.
Educationally..A-levels, some undergrad stuff, but a lifelong intereast in learning though..possible KP.
Martial status ..married 10 yrs, together 24 yrs…. Most likely KoA.
It's always bunnies.
December 5, 2010
Personality: AB's temper… I have strong views on pretty much everything which generally disagree with most over people. And I'm far too honest and hate being ordered and people treating me like I'm stupid… So some KoA & AB
Education: Still in education! I'm at a selective all-girl grammar school which was my idea and the vast majority of family and family friends hate it, and I love to my own research and my education is one of the most important aspects of my life, so maybe some KP there…
Marital Status: Anne of Cleves

Physically (colouration): Jane Seymour – Blonde hair, uber fair skin. My eyes are green though.
Personality: I suppose Jane Seymour (pattern anyone?) in that I pick and choose which battles I fight, AoC in that I think I have a healthy dose of common good sense and I guess a little Anne Boleyn in that when I do fight….I'm like….rawr!
Education: KOA, Anne Boleyn, and Katherine Parr. I have a degree in History and am looking into Grad. schools.
Marital Status: Anne of Cleves. I'm currently single but I would like to get married someday.
Conclusion: I'd be pretty pleased to meet any of the wives. Jane Seymour is my fave but I think we can find something to admire in all the ladies.

I know no one has posted on this topic for a while but I'm kind of new and just can't resist trying this…
Physically (body type)- I'm 5″3, often called petite by other people and have small hands with long fingers so I guess probably closest to Anne Boleyn.
Physically (colouration)- Fair, strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes, so I suppose closest to Jane Seymour, or Catherine Howard.
Personality- I guess I can have strong views and maybe can be quite fiery every now and again so Anne Boleyn in that sense. I'm generally quite bouncy and cheerful though, and I think a few people who know me might say my personality matches Catherine Howard.
Marital Status- This one is easy- Anne of Cleves
Education- I'm not sure with this one as I am about to do a degree….Anne Boleyn at the beginning of her education in France? Catherine Parr? I don't really know.
Conclusion- A mixture between Catherine Howard and Anne Boleyn…..so I'm….Opinionated and flighty? Is that a bad combination?
May 16, 2011
I'm petite (runs in my family). I'm 5'3 but i still have a few years of growing. I have Dark brown hair and dark blue eyes. Anne in this category i guess but Jane with the eyes. I'm very fair skinned also.
My personality: I tend to be very….passionate about things i care about so that kinda goes with Anne. I keep to myself alot and by that i mean i don't tell people how i really feel and i think Catherine of Aragon did that. I'm not a mother but i'm very maternal and i have alot of love towards my niece and nephew, my life has been completely about them the last 2 years so Anne and CatherineOfAragon there. I'm taking french and i find the histories of France very interesting so again Anne.
Honestly it seems like Anne, Catherine of Aragon and a little of Jane (Unfortunately).

Physically (body type): Anne of Cleves. I'm average height, overweight, and have something of a round face.
Physically (coloration): Henry didn't seem to have much use for blonds since none of his wives appear to have had blond hair and blue eyes–or maybe blond hair was a bit of a rarity back then. I don't know. I guess the closest you could say would be KoA, since she was described as having “golden auburn hair” which I take to translate into strawberry blond.
Personality: You have to really piss me off to get my temper going and that usually takes awhile. That doesn't mean that I can't issue some biting words once in a while (and some of my students have gotten the rough side of my tongue before), but rarely do I let loose to tear you a new one. I'm stubborn and if I believe in something strongly I'm unlikely to be swayed, but I also have a strong sense of common sense and logic. I believe strongly in education (shocker!) and lifelong learning. So….I think I'm probably a mix of KoA and CP with a little bit of JS mixed in there.
Marital Status: Married 7 years together almost 10 with two kids…KoA, I guess.
