As I have mentioned before, we just read The Other Boleyn Girl in our book club. I loved this book. I saw the movie years ago and couldn't really remember what all happened. I knew she was beheaded in the end of the book, and yet I still could not put it down.
Here are some facts about Anne Boleyn:
* She was 34 when she was executed.
* She became King Henry's wife after her sister Mary had already been his mistress and had 2 children with him (allegedly).
* Anne gave birth to Elizabeth, Henry's daughter in 1533.
*In 1534, Anne gave birth to a still born baby. The book describes the baby as "a monster". It is not know if this child was a boy or girl.
*Anne's first love was Henry Percy.
* Anne and Henry's marriage was annulled before she was executed, so she was not considered queen when she died.
* Anne was accused of incest with her brother, George. George's wife, Jane, testified to the incest even though she had no evidence.
