Royal Catfishing

Royal Catfishing

The first documented case of a ‘mail order bride’ / ‘catfishing’ was in 1539 when Henry VIII agreed to marry Anne of Cleves based on a painting of her he was sent. He found her so unattractive that he tried to send her back to Germany, and when he couldn’t, divorced her 6 months later.
