Background and further discussion
King Henry's infatuation with Anne Boleyn while married to his first wife, Queen
Catherine, led to the English Reformation when Pope Clement VII refused to
annul the marriage of Henry and Catherine. After their marriage Anne gave
birth to the future Queen, Elizabeth I, and then had three subsequent
miscarriages. Henry grew tired of waiting for Anne to produce a male heir and
fell in love with Jane Seymour. He had Anne tried for high treason, on grounds
of adultery and incest and she was found guilty
and subsequently beheaded.
