Pretty, clever, chic, sharp tongued and ambitious, Anne kept Henry’s lust at bay for 8 years while she schemed to become wife and queen. In triumph she was crowned in 1533 pregnant with her first child Elizabeth. Three miscarriages later Henry turned his back on her.
She was accused of treason using trumped up charges of blatant infidelity with a number of men(including her brother). Anne was executed by decapitation with a sword. She was queen for less than 3 years.
