I don't believe that Anne knew that she'd end up being executed. She did speak to Henry of an ancient prophecy that a queen of England would be burnt at the stake and assured Henry "but even if I were to suffer a thousand deaths, my love for you will not abate for you one jot", but I don't think she could ever have known that their relationship would turn out the way that it did. I think her faith sustained her at the end and she accepted her fate, knowing there was no way out. She knew that she would be going to a better place but I don't think it made those last days any easier, she was leaving her family and her precious little girl, and was facing a brutal death. She could not have known that Elizabeth would ever be queen.
