Part 2 of the Six Wives of Henry VIII series: Anne Boleyn: Queen of England, Marquess of Pembroke and ill-fated second wife of Henry VIII. Anne was one of the most controversial women in English history. She was well educated and outspoken, and described as spirited, mischievous and enigmatic. She was also a talented musician, singer and dancer. Her time spent in the service of the French court lent her an exotic appeal and innate flirtatiousness.
During a time in history when women lacked control, Anne claimed control over her own body and her own destiny. She established boundaries as often as she crossed them, creating unease and tension amongst the court, and her quarrellous marriage. Ultimately, she was unable to give Henry the son and Tudor heir he desperately needed and their marriage ended tragically. She was publicly executed on patently false charges of witchcraft, incest and adultery on 19 May 1536. Her daughter would eventually become England’s greatest queen, Queen Elizabeth I.
