Do you think that Anne Boleyn was Henry’s true love rather then Jane Seymour? Of course he loved her because she gave him the son he wanted but do you think he only loved Jane because of this? Thanks, Rianne
Henry spoke of Jane being his true wife and I'm sure he loved her, particularly as she gave him the greates gift of all, a son, but I don't think he loved her in the same passionate and intensive way that he loved Anne Boleyn. He and Anne were similar in so many ways and had shared interests, and I think she was the love of his life. He spent 7 years pursuing Anne and fighting to be with her, he broke away from his beloved Church to be with her, he upset his people, his friends and his family to be with her, and I don't think that it was just lust or infatuation, it was love.
