1 June 1533 – The Coronation of Anne Boleyn

02 Jun

After being secretly wed to the newly divorced King Henry VIII on January 25, Anne Boleyn came at last to Westminster Abbey, where she was crowned Queen of England on this day inc 1533.  What stood out about the ceremony was the fast that she had crowned with the Crown of St. Edward, which up until that point had only been used for the coronation of the reigning monarch.  She would reign as Queen for a mere three years before her execution at the Tower of London, but in that short time, she would be responsible for the break between the Catholic Church in Rome and the Church of England and give birth to the girl who would one day become Elizabeth I.
