Anne Boleyn knew her life was in grave danger if she could not provide a living son. It's possible she could have saved her own life if she agreed to an annulment, but that would have made her daughter illegitimate.
I think Anne's fate was sealed when Catherine of Aragon died and she suffered a miscarriage. The presence of a living ex-wife complicated Henry's life while he was married to Anne and he did not want history to repeat itself.

Many people considered Elizabeth illegitimate because Catherine of Aragon was still living when Elizabeth was born. He didn't want any question about the legitimacy of any sons he had with subsequent wives.

Just something amusing (on a cold day here in Australia.)

‘Henry VIII’s wives if they’d never met him!’

Yes, in reality there were probably several blackened and missing chompers among them. However it’s only a bit of fun!

It's a lovely "redo" of their portraits. Their eyes lit up and smiles so free and joyful... reality bites!
