Did Anne Boleyn have another motto?

She chose the motto "The Most Happy" for her coronation but previously she did have the motto "Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne", which when translated means "Grumble all you like, this is how it’s going to be", embroidered on to her livery. I think that this was just Anne's famous "black" humour and was in reaction to people "grumbling" about her "usurping" Catherine. She only used this motto for a few weeks and then had it removed.

Elizabeth I's motto "Semper Eadem", meaning "always the same", was said to be used by Anne Boleyn.
