Anne Boleyn Anne Boleyn

She was the second of King Henry VIII six wives and the first of two who were beheaded.

Everything was noble in this woman – her birth, her appearance, mind and manners. She was a daughter of an outstanding English diplomat. Being a girl (12 -15 yeas-old) she bewitched the rulers of Netherlands and France whilst living at their courts. In 1522 Anne was recalled to England where she became one of the most sophisticated and stylish women of the court. In 1533 after her marriage to Henry VIII she became the Queen of England. It seemed that such a talented, educated and intelligent woman could do everything that was required of a queen. But she could not. She could not bear a male heir for the king and that sealed her doom. In 1536 Anne was executed.
