This Day In History

June 1st -
1533 Anne Boleyn was crowned Queen of England. She became the second wife of King Henry VIII. This was short lived. She was beheaded less than 3 years later in May of 1536 after being found guilty of adultery and incest. Modern historians find the carches against her to be unconvincing. Her daughter Elizabeth I of England would later become Queen of England. King Henry VII ended up having a total of 6 wives, 2 of which he had beheaded.
