The Barren Queen

Been reading about Queen Mary of England, daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon, who was known as the "Barren Queen" and never was able to have children.

The whole thing is very interesting for me and I wonder if anyone who has had a child like me, easily and naturally, can ever know what it's like for another woman who is eager but unable to have a child. It's really so sad.
