1501 ca1513-15361536, May 19
Queen of England from 1533 to 1536 as the second wife of King Henry VIII, and Marquess of Pembroke in her own right. Henry's marriage to her, and her subsequent execution by beheading, made her a key figure in the political and religious upheaval that was the start of the English Reformation. She was educated in the Netherlands and France, largely as a maid of honour to Claude of France. Anne returned to England in early 1522, to marry her Irish cousin James Butler, 9th Earl of Ormond; the marriage plans were broken up by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, and instead she secured a post at court as maid of honour to Henry VIII's wife, Catherine of Aragon.
