11 April 1533 – Anne Boleyn the Queen
Posted By Claire on April 11, 2015
Good Friday 1533, the 11th April, was a big day for Anne Boleyn because it was on that day that Henry VIII ordered his council to recognise Anne Boleyn as his righful wife and queen.
While Henry was meeting with his council, his new Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, was working on the annulment of Henry’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon, a marriage that Henry VIII saw as invalid and contrary to God’s law.
