  • Anne Boleyn is the most notable out of all King Henry VIII's wives.
  • The exact date of Anne Boleyn's birth is unknown, thus making her exact age unknown. She was beheaded between 28 and 35 years old.
  • King Henry VIII had two children with Anne's sister, Mary Boleyn before he knew Anne Boleyn.
  • Pregnant 3 times by King Henry VIII, but gave birth twice, and only Princess Elizabeth Tudor survived.
  • Anne Boleyn was locked inside The Tower of London for weeks before her beheading.
  • Beheaded by sword, as it is sharper and quicker than an ax. Henry decided to order a sword for her, historians are not certain as to what this display meant.

Right before her beheaded, he asked for forgiveness, to which she granted him.
