CLUES & COMMENTS: “One of six to eight” is one of the biggest clues in the book, indicating Catherine of Aragon, the first of six wives of King Henry VIII, near whose monument the jewel was hidden. “In the earth am I” confirms that the treasure is, in fact, buried in the ground somewhere, and not inside a building, vehicle, or other man-made structure.
