Anne Boleyn [Anne Boleyn]
(1507–36) the second wife of King ↑Henry VIII and the mother of Queen ↑Elizabeth I. Her marriage to Henry against the wishes of the Pope led to England’s break from the ↑Roman Catholic Church and the start of the ↑Church of England. However, when she failed to produce a son, Henry lost interest in her. She was accused of having affairs with other men, and her head was cut off.
