Did Anne Boleyn read Tarot cards as portrayed in “The Other Boleyn Girl” film?

There is no evidence that Anne Boleyn read tarot cards. However, in The Other Boleyn Girl and The Tudors, if my memory serves me correctly, Anne finds a tarot card of the Queen which has been cut so the queen is missing her head. This refers to a drawing in a book of prophecy which Anne saw which depicted Henry, Catherine of Aragon and Anne but the figure of Anne was missing its head. Anne did not take this seriously and when Anne Gainsford worried about the picture, Anne called the book a "bauble" and commented that she would marry the king "whatsoever might become of me". Anne also spoke to Henry of an ancient prophecy that a queen of England would be burnt at the stake but assured Henry "but even if I were to suffer a thousand deaths, my love for you will not abate for you one jot."
