Hey seeing as its our Annes anniversary soon ive been watching some Tudors episodes theres one where Anne is preparing her coronation with her sister Mary and she gets quite overwhelmed and starts crying I wondered if they were tears of happiness or fear? I mean it mustve been daunting been from nothing then elavated to Queen of England Do you think she mightve freaked out just a little bit and thought like ‘my god its actually happened, have i taken it too far? what if the child isnt a prince?’ What are your thoughts on this guys?x

I think Anne’s emotions were probably all over the place to be honest.
There she was about to be crowned Queen of England, heavily pregnant with what she and Henry hoped would be the longed for heir.
She must have felt overwelmed by it all. Anne was after all a humble knight’s daughter who was raised to the peerage due to Henry’s lust for her.
Indeed her ancestry was that of a wealthy London mercer who happened to become Lord Mayor I believe, and as a result married into wealth. The crowning marriage of course was Thomas B marriage to Elizabeth Howard, quite a feat for someone whose bloodline was not top drawer quality to begin with.
I would take the Tudors series with a pinch of salt, although brilliant (in fact I’m watching it again) it isn’t exactly factual and a lot of poetic licence has been taken, view it as a soap opera.

I think it could have been a little of both! Of course I think that she would have been happy that her life was changing and that she was about to be Queen. I think she probably would have had a little fear too. She was only human after all. I think deep down behind all the joy she did fear what she was going into and what might happen if the baby she was carrying was not the desired prince. I love that scene in The Tudors. I think it really showed her awarness of it all.

I think it was a combination of excitement and relief. Excitement that she was carrying the heir, excitement of the coronation and all the pageantry (which, according to Ives reflected her modern interpretation rather than the medieval coronations Henry and Catherine had). Relief because it was actually happening after six years of waiting and fighting.
The period between May and September 1533 was probably the happiest of Anne’s life.
