TRUTH !!
Anne and Katherine were first cousins. However, all of Henry's wives (and
Henry himself for that matter) could trace their descent to Edward I, so
they were all distantly related to one another.
Catherine’s father, Lord Edmund Howard, was the brother of Anne Boleyn’s
mother, Lady Elizabeth Howard.
