“I want all of them to know exactly how much I love you”
Some of my favorite quotes of Henry and Anne. (Watch with headphones for a better experience) (Assistam com fone de ouvido 💗) Parabéns @m.luizaa___ 🎂❤️
🥀Who is the woman comforting Queen Anne Boleyn in the Tower of London? 🥀Perhaps her aunt? 🥀What were the Queen’s last words or thoughts? 🥀 Lady Anne Tempest, wife of Sir Edward Boleyn, thus Anne’s aunt;
Lady Boleyn was probably one of the four ladies permitted to accompany Anne to the scaffold on 19 May 1536, watching her die with one blow of the executioner’s sword. 🥀
Anne Boleyn was King Henry VIII’s second wife (he had six wives in total). 🥀
Henry and Anne formally married on 25 January 1533, after the Pope in Rome refused to null King Henry VIII’s first marriage, which prompted the King to break from the Catholic Church and mandated himself as the head of the Church of England. 🥀
Anne was crowned Queen of England on 1 June 1533. 🥀On 7 September, she gave birth to the future Queen Elizabeth I. 🥀Henry was disappointed to have a daughter rather than a son but hoped a son would follow and professed to love Elizabeth. 🥀Anne subsequently had three miscarriages, and by March 1536, Henry was courting Jane Seymour.🥀 In order to marry Jane Seymour, Henry had to find reasons for his marriage with Anne to end.
Henry VIII had Anne investigated for high treason. 🥀And that brings us back to this painting where Anne Boleyn is probably moments away from being beheaded; four days after she was found guilty of false charges. 🥀🥀🥀 “Anne Boleyn In The Tower” 1835

Does anyone else here ever feel like they were born in the wrong era? Like their soul belongs to another century? I do. (Photo by my sweet better half, Rob - Halloween 2017 Anne Boleyn costume.) #AnneBoleyn#Tudor
17th December 1559
Matthew Parker was consecrated as Archbishop of Canterbury.
He had been offered the post of Queen Elizabeth I’s Archbishop of Canterbury in 1558, a post which he did not believe that he was right for or fit enough for (he’d had a nasty fall from a horse), Parker wrote to Sir Nicholas Bacon:
“though my heart would right fain serve my sovereign lady the Queen’s majesty, in more respects than of mine allegiance, not forgetting what words her grace’s mother said to me of her, not six days before her apprehension, yet this my painful infirmity will not suffer it in all manner servings…”
In a letter written in 1572 to William Cecil, Lord Burghley, Matthew Parker wrote of how he had only accepted the position because of his promise to the Queen’s late mother, Anne Boleyn:
“Yea, if I had not been so much bound to the mother, I would not so soon have granted to serve the daughter in this place.” Picture

"He went to fetch your secretary, but he met a lady, who made him forget the matter!" - Anne to the French ambassador Admiral Chabot on December 1, 1533 about her laughter when she saw King Henry VIII go to fetch his secretary but saw a lady that made him forget about his errand in the first place.
