@CarrotIsland: Lady Anne Boleyn was the second wife of Henry VIII of England. She was Queen of England from 1533 to 1536. Her marriage to Henry VIII and her execution made her a key figure in the political and religious upheaval that started the English Reformation.
Lady Anne secured a post at the court as maid of honor to Henry’s Queens consort, Catherine of Aragon. When the King began to pursue her, she refused to become his mistress. The King then tried to annul his marriage to Catherine, but Pope Clement VII wouldn’t grant one. The Archbishop of Canterbury granted Henry and Catherine an annulment.
She married the King on January 25, 1533 and gave birth to a daughter. She suffered three miscarriages and couldn’t give the King a son. The King had Anne investigated for treason. She was arrested and found guilty. She was sent to the Tower of London where she was beheaded.
