Catherine was crowned Queen alongside Henry in a joint ceremony. For the first few years accounts suggest they lived happily together. In 1510 Catherine gave birth to a daughter, but she was stillborn, marking the start of Catherine’s misfortune. While there was great celebration over the birth of Catherine's second child, Prince Henry, in 1511, he died soon after. In all she bore Henry six children, including three sons, but all of them died except for one Mary born in 1516.
