Mother: Lady Elizabeth Howard
Father: Thomas Boleyn, Earl of Wiltshire, Earl of Ormonde and Viscount Rochford
Married: 25th January 1533, wedding declared valid 28th may 1533

Reign: 28th Mary 1533 – 17th May 1536
Coronation: 1st June 1533
Marriage status: Annulled 17th May 1536. Possibly due to consanguinity – meaning that due to Henry’s previous sexual relationship with Anne’s sister Mary, it would have put Anne within the first degree of affinity to Henry; essentially he would have been marrying his sister. Thus it would have been against Cannon law for Henry to marry Anne
