Notes:  In a scene from Shakespeare's King Henry VIII (1613), Queen Katherine dreams of eternal happiness while on her deathbed. As the `spirits of peace' depart from her, she raises her arms in joy. Katherine of Aragon (1485-1536) was the wife of Henry VIII from 1501 until their divorce in 1533, causing the break from Rome and allowing Henry to marry Ann Boleyn.
