      May 19, 1536 - Queen Anne Boleyn is beheaded for adultery, treason, and incest. Boleyn was the second wife of King Henry VIII. The marriage between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn followed the annulment of Henry's marriage to Catherine of Aragon by Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury. Consequently, this led to the excommunication of Henry and Cramner by Pope Paul III. As a result, the Church of England broke away from Rome and was brought under the King's control. #history #anneboleyn #tudor

      Anne Boleyn (play /ˈbʊlɪn/, /bəˈlɪn/ or /bʊˈlɪn/);[2][3] c.1501/1507[4] – 19 May 1536) was Queen of England from 1533 to 1536 as the second wife of Henry VIII of England and Marquess of Pembroke in her own right.[5] Henry's marriage to Anne, and her subsequent execution, made her a key figure in the political and religious upheaval that was the start of the English Reformation. A commoner, Anne was the daughter of Thomas Boleyn, 1st Earl of Wiltshire and his wife, Lady Elizabeth Howard, and was educated in the Netherlands and France, largely as a maid of honour to Claude of France. She returned to England in early 1522, in order to marry her Irish cousin James Butler, 9th Earl of Ormond; however, the marriage plans ended in failure and she secured a post at court as maid of honour to Henry VIII's queen consort, Catherine of Aragon. Early in 1523 there was a secret betrothal between Anne and Henry Percy son of the 5th Earl of Northumberland. However, in January of 1524 Cardinal Thomas Wolsey broke the betrothal, Anne was sent back home to Hever Castle, and Percy was married to Lady Mary Talbot, to whom he had been betrothed since adolescence. In February/ March 1526 Henry VIII began courtly pursuit of Anne. She resisted his attempts to seduce her, refusing to become his mistress as her sister Mary had. It soon became the one absorbing object of Henry's desires to annul his marriage to Queen Catherine so he would be free to marry Anne. When it became clear that Pope Clement VII would not annul the marriage, the breaking of the power of the Catholic Church in England began. In 1532, Henry granted her the Marquesate of Pembroke. Henry and Anne married on 25 January 1533. On 23 May 1533 Thomas Cranmer declared Henry and Catherine's marriage null and void; five days later, he declared Henry and Anne's marriage to be good and valid. Shortly afterwards, the Pope decreed sentences of excommunication against Henry and Cranmer. As a result of this marriage and these excommunications, the first break between the Church of England and Rome took place and the Church of England was brought under the King's control. Anne was crowned Queen of England on 1 June 1533. On 7 September she gave birth to the future Elizabeth I of England. To Henry's displeasure, however, she failed to produce a male heir. Henry was not totally discouraged, for he said that he loved Elizabeth and that a son would surely follow. Three miscarriages followed, however, and by March 1536, Henry was courting Jane Seymour. Henry had Anne investigated for high treason in April 1536. On 2 May she was arrested and sent to the Tower of London, where she was tried before a jury of peers and found guilty on 15 May. She was beheaded four days later on Tower Green. Modern historians view the charges against her, which included adultery and incest, as unconvincing. Following the coronation of her daughter, Elizabeth, as queen, Anne was venerated as a martyr and heroine of the English Reformation, particularly through the works of John Foxe.[6] Over the centuries, she has inspired or been mentioned in numerous artistic and cultural works. As a result, she has retained her hold on the popular imagination. Anne has been called "the most influential and important queen consort England has ever had,"[7] since she provided the occasion for Henry VIII to divorce Catherine of Aragon, and declare his independence from Rome.

    February 8, 1487: Mary, Queen of Scots, executed. "I forgive you with all my heart, for now, I hope, you shall make an end to all my troubles," Mary told the executioner. His first blow missed her neck altogether. The second struck her neck, but didn't cut through -- he had to saw through to finish the job. When he held her head aloft by the hair, her wig came off and her head rolled to the ground. Then, a bloody little Skye terrier emerged from her skirts, and refused to leave his mistress.
