Anne Boleyn, Marchioness of Pembroke and Queen Consort of England (1505/1507 Ė May 19, 1536) was the second (of the six) wife and queen consort of Henry VIII and the mother of Elizabeth I of England who would become Queen. Born into the English aristocracy, Anne was educated in France from 1514 until 1521. Returning to England in 1522, she caught the eye of Henry VIII who proposed marriage to her in 1527. An intellectual who believed in the Divine Right of Kings and certain aspects of the new Protestant religion, Anne played a major role in the English Reformation. She was crowned in 1533, but after the birth of her eldest daughter that same year she failed to successfully carry another pregnancy to term. She was falsely accused of adultery and treason in order that the King could marry someone else in 1536; she was beheaded by a French swordsman on the 19th May. Before her death, she joked that, "I heardsay the executioner was very good, and I have a little neck."
