19th May, 1536.
On this day in history, 477 years ago, Queen Anne Boleyn went to her death in the Tower of London, falsely charged of the most heinous crimes. It is recorded that she was gracious and genteel until she went into the arms of her God.
As strange as it sounds, my heart aches for her, and I am filled with sorrow for both poor Anne, and her Princess left behind, Elizabeth. I have, and always will, adore the Tudor era of English history, but today is the one day in a historical year that I remember the in-just nature and barbarism of the 16th Century.
God bless your soul, Queen Anne.
