27 April 1536 – Parliament and a bishop consulted – The Fall of Anne Boleyn

On this day in 1536, writs were issued summoning Parliament, a letter was sent to Archbishop Cranmer, and, according to Eustace Chapuys, a bishop was consulted regarding whether Henry VIII could abandon his second wife, Anne Boleyn.
