- In 1514, she accompanied Henry VIII’s youngest sister, Mary Tudor, to France when she wed King Louis XII.
- In 1521/1522, when war with France seemed imminent, Anne returned home to England.
- When Anne finally joined Henry’s court, she went as a lady-in-waiting to Catherine of Aragon.
- Henry’s greatest interest in Anne was the fact that he couldn’t have her.
- Initially, she avoided Henry’s advances. She learned from her sister that she did not want to be a pawn to him and then be cast aside.
- The king had no desire to aggravate the pope by flaunting his new love interest, so, initially, Henry was reserved.
- Henry, in an effort to placate Anne, gave her the title of marquess of Pembroke on 4 September 1532.
- After the king’s final separation from Catherine in July 1531, Anne’s position began to solidify.
- She, and not the king, was probably the originator of the petty accusations against Catherine and her daughter, Mary.
- With their marriage, Henry set up the Church of England of which he declared himself the head.
- Anne’s behavior is said to have been preposterous, but experts speculate that she began to fall out of Henry’s favor when she failed to produce him a male heir.
- On 1 May 1536, the king suddenly broke up a tournament at Greenwich leaving his company bewildered.
- Anne was committed to the Tower of London on 2 May 1536
- On 12 May 1536, Sir Francis Weston, Henry Norris, William Brereton, and Mark Smeaton were declared guilty of high treason while Anne and Lord

- On the 17th, all of her “lovers” were executed.
- Anne met her death on the Tower Green on 19 May 1536.
- On 20 May 1536, the day after Anne’s death, Henry was betrothed to Jane Seymour.
Jane Seymour b. 1504/1509 - d. 1537
- Henry’s third wife, married on 30 May 1536
- Came to court as a lady-in-waiting to Catherine of Aragon and stayed on to serve Anne Boleyn
- Said to be the wife most loved by Henry

- Jane suffered a difficult labor, and although she attended the baptismal ceremonies and received well-wishers, she was quickly struck down with fever and passed on 24 October 1537. Young Edward was just 12 days old.
- Henry wore black for two years and did not take another.
About this Document
An history presentation of the English Renaissance with particular focus on the Tydor family and all of the trials and tribulations that they encountered. (My seniors LOVE the soap opera-like drama!) It also includes Shakespeare's history, the history of his writings, some fun activities to do in the middle of the presentation (Shakespearean insults, "quoting Shakespeare"), high-resolution images of his birth home, and a history of The Globe Theatre with HR images. For size reasons (includes high resolution images I took on vacation to England) this is a four-part upload.
