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.

    I know their those on this website who resent Queen Jane for whatever reasons.But to be honest i do not hate her, yes she did marry the king within a short period of Anne’s execution.In my opinion she thought she was doing the right thing. Her untimely death saved her from the humiliations experienced by the first 2 queens. If she had lived long she would have been a good queen consort.
