Queen Anne Boleyn

The date was April 12, 1533, the day was Easter and the place was Greenwich Palace where Anne Boleyn was first publicly presented as queen to the Tudor Court. Her husband, King Henry VIII would have her crowned queen consort on 1 June 1533 in a magnificent ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Anne was the last queen consort of England to be crowned separately from her husband. Unlike any other queen consort, Anne was crowned with St Edward’s Crown.

How could she ever have known that within three short years everything would change so swiftly, tragically, and dramatically.
