May 28 – Anne Boleyn is Henry VIII’s rightful wife and queen

It seems so strange to go from counting down to Anne Boleyn’s execution in May 1536 to sharing events from a time of victory and joy for her in May 1533.

On this day in Tudor history, 28th May 1533, over four months after Henry VIII had married Anne Boleyn at Whitehall Palace, and six months after a possible secret marriage at Dover, Archbishop Cranmer proclaimed the union valid.

Anne was now officially queen and it was just in time for her coronation celebrations!
