Electronic Card 1 • Source: Beatty, Laura. Anne Boleyn. 2004, Short Books. • Subject: Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII ‘s friendship grows. • Keywords: Flirting, judgment, love, marriage. • Abstract: • Anne Boleyn was a normal, French heiress coming from a family that was hungry for money. • Her father wanted her to find a rich man, and this turned out to be no one else than King Henry VIII. • She met him at the court and their friendship grew stronger as each day passed by. • Henry was captivated by her exotic beauty, with long, black hair and pale face. • He would do anything to make her his wife, even if it meant giving up his religion or changing England as a whole. • Anne became his lover and everyone knew about it even Henry’s wife, who was previously married to Henry's dead brother. • With this new love affair it is reasonable to say that many problems would arise in England for it was so powerful that King Henry was willing to give up everything in return for a new son with this beautiful and interesting girl who captivated his attention after having just a short dance with her. • Anne Boleyn was not giving up on Henry as well, and it was obvious that she was going to fight to have him and his money and power.

EncyclopediaBritannica Online. 14 Apr. 2010 <http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/26247/Anne-Boleyn>. • Subject: Annulment of marriage and thedesiretohaveanEnglishHeir. • Keywords: annulment, reformation, impact, heirtot he throne • Abstract: • The series of events surrounding the annulment of Henry's marriage to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, and his marriage to Anne led him to separate from the Roman Catholic church and caused the English Reformation. • In 1527, Henry secretly mastered a plan to annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragon because she would not bare him a male heir to the throne. • Pope Clement VII refused to annul the marriage under the influence of Henry’s enemy, Charles V. • In 1533 Henry and Anne were secretly married. Henry had the archbishop of Canterbury pronounce his last marriage null and void. • Anne gave birth to the future Queen Elizabeth I. • She had a miscarriage, and later gave birth to a stillborn male. • Henry was furious and charged her of adultery and later persecuted her. • Henry married Jane Seymour weeks later. • Henry created this huge circle of problems and caos just because he wanted Anne to bare him an heir to the throne. • This must have been the reason why everyone turned against the king, including the church. • No King should hide a marriage to his country because that means one cannot trust him. • Anne’s murder was just another plot of treason because Henry wanted to remarry Jane. • Their actual marriage just a few weeks after Anne’s death proves it.
