19 May 1536 – The end of Queen Anne Boleyn

Posted By on May 18, 2019

Today is, of course, the anniversary of the execution of Queen Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII, on 19th May 1536 at the Tower of London.

In today’s video, I explain exactly what happened on this day and share Queen Anne Boleyn’s execution speech.

I’m doing these “Fall of Anne Boleyn” videos daily until 19th May and I started on 24th April. You can catch up with them on the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society Youtube Channel.
