why is anne boleyn not considered queen anne 1? was she queen when she died? just wondering because i was researching the monarchs of england and wondered why queen anne (sucessor of william & mary) is not considered queen anne ii? or is that only for kings?
Anne Boleyn was not a Queen Regnant, not the monarch, she was Henry VIII's consort. Queen Anne, the Stuart Queen, was the actual ruling monarch. Hope that makes sense. Just like Queen Elizabeth II's husband, Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh, is not King Philip. He is Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark so that's why he is a prince.
