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.)

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!

Anne of Cleves is the only one of Henry's wives to be buried at Westminster Abbey.
Anne who died at Chelsea on 17th July 1557 was given a Roman Catholic funeral by order of queen Mary on August 4th and is buried near the High Altar. The funeral Mass was celebrated by the Lord Abbot of Westminster ,Hugh Weston.

An artifact connected with Anne Boleyn and possibly Hampton Court Palace has been rediscovered in the shape of a wooden bird, with stones attachment. Incredibly rare for anything to do with this particular Queen to turn up, and hopefully it can return to Hampton Court.

Why did Anne have to use Rochford?

After her father was created Viscount Rochford in 1525, Anne sometimes called herself "Anne Rocheford/Rochford."

These source includes a letter she signed as "Anne Rocheford':

And this one contains a letter she signed as "Anne Rochford":

Thank you for this. Another helpful reminder that the names by which historical figures and families are called posthumously quite often are not reflective of the names they used in actuality.

Sir Thomas Boleyn also had the titles of Earl of Wiltshire and Earl of Ormond (Irish title) bestowed on him in 1529.

In 1546 King Henry VIII made peace with France. Before this when England and France were at war, why did King Henry sell off some monastic lands?

If Henry was at war with France he would need a war chest and he had an abundance of Monastic lands having dissolved the Abbeys and other Religious houses from 1535 onwards.

Selling the monastic lands would raise money for his fruitless wars.

Such a waste of money. Some of the Edward VI Grammar Schools founded with the money from the dissolution of the chantries are still going strong today, as are the university colleges founded by Cardinal Wolsey and Lady Margaret Beaufort. That money was a drop in the ocean compared to what Henry got from taking the wealth of the monasteries and then selling off the land - just think what could have been achieved if he'd spent the money on something useful!

Did you know that Anne Stafford, Countess of Huntingdon was a mistress of King Henry VIII?

I had never heard of Lady Anne being a mistress of Henry VIII before but she was involved in a scandal Sir William Compton and ended up with Lady Anne being sent to a convent for some time.

Lady Anne was the daughter of Lady Catherine Woodville a sister of Queen Elizabeth and a cousin of the King.
