    Yeah – she does seem like such a nice person. She was probably already mixed
    Up in the attempted poisoning of Fisher and would have had Katherine and Mary
    Done to death in a instant, given the chance. Really nice.

  6. Anne brought her premature demise upon herself.l If she had allowed Henry to sleep with her and be done with it she would no doubt have lived long as did her sister before her.Instead she demanded the crown before slipping between the sheets; even so,had she produced a male heir she might have survived.

    1. Claire says:

      There’s no evidence at all that she demanded the crown before sleeping with Henry. She actually retreated to Hever to get away from Hever but he kept bombarding her with letters. His letters show that she was not interested and was rebuffing him, it was he who offered her marriage and not her demanding it. I don’t think she had much choice by that stage, she was being pursued by a king who just wouldn’t go away.

    2. Christine says:

      Why should she sleep with Henry if she didn’t want to? a woman’s body is her own, most men will sleep with anything for the sake of it but women are different, we have to fancy the guy in question and she had no idea that she would lose her head, we don’t know what was said between Anne and Henry when they were on their own only that she had promised to marry him, he was so besotted with her no one could ever have predicted several years later that he would order her execution, to say that she brought her death on herself is absolving Henry of all blame and his chief minister and the members of the jury to, no one deserved to die at Henrys court by our standards their crimes were small, and when Henry ordered Anne’s death it was unprecedented, she was the first Queen in history to be killed by her husband, no other King had ever done that so why should she ‘sleep ‘ with Henry she had dignity and standards, she wasn’t easy like her sister she had no wish to be used and then discarded, if any thing you could say she died as a direct result of keeping herself chaste which really makes her out to be a martyr.

    Remembering Anne, who lost her life on this day….I hope she’s resting in peace and I hope Henry got his karma.

    I learned about the death of Anne watching a documentary of Tower of London. There seems to be a “belief” that Henry showed some mercy because a French swordeman was ordered in to make Anne’s beheading a quick one. Much was discussed about how and when that man must had been summoned. Some people even used this angle to determine whether the trial result was pre-arranged.

    I really don’t know about the facts regarding this “French swordsman from Calai (or, of Calai).” Would it be possible that he was actually in London or in certain part of England when this whole drama happened? That Henry can call upon him in a day or less time? Is there proof that this man was defintely in France during May, 1536?
