30 May 1536 – A New Queen: Jane Seymour

Posted By on May 30, 2012

On Tuesday 30th May 1536, just eleven days after the execution of his second wife, Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII married Jane Seymour in the Queen’s Closet at York Place (Whitehall), the property renovated by himself and Anne.

Jane was officially proclaimed Queen at Greenwich Palace on the 4th June 1536, Whitsun. I wonder if either she or Henry VIII thought back to Whitsun 1533, the day of Anne Boleyn’s coronation.
