  • Notes 
    • Anne Boleyn was English, and of noble birth. Her badge shows a falcon. She spent some time in France and returned to England in the 1520s. She was Maid-in-Waiting to Catherine of Aragon and refused to be another of Henry's mistresses (of which he had many). She was a very confident character and finally persuaded Henry to marry her in 1533 (immediately after the marriage to Catherine was annulled).

      Shortly after they were married, Anne gave birth to Elizabeth (later to become Queen Elizabeth I). Their relationship after the birth of Henry's second daughter started to deteriorate, but when she gave birth to a still-born son, Henry was convinced that God thought that his marriage was wrong, because the annulment had been wrong, and that he was cursing him by not giving him a son.

      He charged Anne with treason, after making up false evidence against her. She was finally executed at the Tower of London, where she was beheaded with a sword, in 1536.
