Happy Birthday Henry VIII

Divorced, Beheaded, Died. Divorced, Beheaded, Survived. 

So goes the rhyme that helps people remember how one of my favorite kings dispatched with five of his wives. 

And today is King Henry VIII's 523rd birthday of one of my favorite kings. You can celebrate with this very special mug. When you fill it with hot water, Henry's wives disappear. Although to be fair, it did take a little more than hot water for him to get rid of most of them.

By rights the last wife, Catherine Parr, shouldn't disappear from the mug. She outlived him. I guess even disappearing royal wives mugs aren't fair.
