Actually, Anne Boylen, the second of the full six of King Henry VIII's wives, married the King after he broke away from the Church of Rome, which didn't allow divorces, which meant he couldn't separate from his first wife Catherine of Aragon, who only produced a boy (who couldn't survive infancy) and a girl. King Henry VIII wanted a male to be his heir. Scandalously, Anne was already pregnant when they married. Unfortunately (at least to her), Anne produced a female, Queen Elizabeth I. After about 1,000 days into her marriage, King Henry VIII ordered her execution with many (most likely false) charges, including witchcraft and conspiracy against the king.
