Who was Henry VIII's second wife?

Anne Boleyn was the second wife of Henry VIII, although she greatly tried to resist his attempts at seducing her as her sister, Mary Boleyn had fallen for him and become his mistress while he was still married to his first wife, Catherine or Aragon. However, in 1533, she and Henry VIII were married in a secret ceremony, although he was still married. Anne Boleyn soon became pregnant with the King’s child and so a second marriage ceremony was held on January 25, 1533, when he was also still married to his first wife. It was not actually until May 23 of that same year that King Henry obtained a divorce from his first wife. Five days later, the marriage between Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII was declared valid.

Anne Boleyn gave birth to their daughter on September 7, 1533 and she would later go on to become Queen Elizabeth I of England. Anne Boleyn did become pregnant again with a son however, he was born a stillborn. Because it seemed that Anne could not provide him with the son that he wanted, King Henry spoke to his chief minister, Thomas Cromwell, about having her killed. Having very little evidence against her, Anne Boleyn was still beheaded on the grounds of adultery, incest, and high treason in 1536.

Anne Boleyn was the Queen consort of England and many people still call her ‘the most influential and important’ Queen consort England has ever seen. She was very active in the English Reformation and became known as a martyr and heroine in the attempt to break the English Church free from the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church.
