OMG THIS WEEK WHEN THEY TOLD TIFFANY SHE GOT THE MOST SAFETY VOTES
AND SHE STARTED CRYING BECAUSE SHE WAS SO HAPPY AND SURPRISED.
But, she was also confused because she didn’t know she had so many supporters so she kept asking, “How am I still here? How? I-I’m so out of place here. How am I still here?” And then another housemate said: clearly this should show you that you’re not out of place.
Susan hesitated in the doorway of the library, one hand resting on the wooden frame. It was late and Susan couldn’t sleep, feeling too homesick to sleep and thought reading might distract her. It’s not that the young queen didn’t love Narnia but Susan loved England too and some days she missed it more than she could say. “Hello, Mr. Tumnus. Couldn’t sleep either?”

Many of you may already know the torturing tale of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. But for those of you who do not… what is their story? Is she the favorite of all Henry’s wives? Why would he have subjected her to such a cruel and horrific death?
At the time, Henry was married to Catherine of Aragon, a Spanish princess that could not produce Henry with a male heir. This troubled him greatly, as there had never been a female Queen in England, and would surely inflict chaos on his country.
The common misconception is that Henry suddenly fell for Anne Boleyn, completely infatuated with her. This is not the case, for Henry first found interest in her fair and plain sister, Mary. They had an affair, Henry hoping he would have a son, but knowing he could not truly claim him as legitimate. But it is speculated that this indeed was the case, that Mary had produced him with a son, and presumably named him Henry. Of course, the little child was illegitimate and could therefore have no place on the throne of England.
Henry then turned to the woman he had been interested in for so long, Mary’s sister, the dark-haired Anne, who had been serving as mistress to the Queen. His passion for Anne was fueled by her educated, intelligent, feisty, outgoing character. A disposition they had in common. It is said that Anne was not particularly beautiful, but that her personality made up for what was lacking in appearance. Henry saw all the beauty there was in her, and that was all she needed. They had a passionate affair, leaving Anne pregnant.
Henry truly loved Anne. He would stop at nothing to be with her, and to make their child legitimate. It’s true, Henry really did stop at nothing. In his yearning to be with Anne, Henry eventually divorced Catherine (whom he had been wed to for 24 years), with much difficulty from the Pope…a story for another time.
Henry was married to Anne Boleyn in June of 1533. Not only this, but Henry also put forth an Act of Supremacy in 1534, stating that the King is the head of the church in England. This independence from the church and Pope, changed the country in many ways, regarding the religious reformation…also a story for another time. This break from Rome was known as Henry’s greatest achievement, changing the course of history.
By the year 1536, Anne had still not produced Henry with a male heir. This was upsetting for Henry as King, but not known as the reason for her tragic execution. It is said that Anne had many affairs, that she was therefore an adulteress. She was also accused of incest with her brother, and even witchcraft. Whether these events truly did come to pass, or they were rumor, historians have yet to truly uncover. But alas, Anne was put on trial for these allegations, and executed (beheaded) in May of 1536.
Some had been on Anne’s side, especially those who were of protestant belief; while others despised her and wanted her dead. It is not known whether Henry really wanted her to be executed, or if he mourned her death. But from the love letters they sent to one another, to the fiery passion of their romance, it is obvious that Henry loved her, and always would.
“The demonstrations of your affection… forever to honor our love… assuring you that, on my part, I will surpass [your affection] rather than make it reciprocal, if loyalty of heart and a desire to please you can accomplish this” (Love Letter 5). “For what joy can be greater upon earth than to have the company of her who is dearest to me?” (Love Letter 12). ~Henry VIII
Members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons came to kiss her hand and were graciously received as the heralds proclaimed her in the streets. The principal members of the government were confirmed in office for a month at least. On March 11th, crowned and dressed in red velvet, Anne delivered her first formal speech to Parliament. ‘As I know my own heart to be entirely English,’ she said, ‘I can very sincerely assure you that there is not anything you can expect or desire from me which I shall not be ready to do for the happiness and prosperity of England.’ She had a soft, sweet speaking voice and made a good impression, though she was bashful and blushed so much that unkind observers compared her to the inn sign of the Rose and Crown.
– her son was her SAVIOR, not her husband. though the king of england was pleased that she fulfilled her long-given promise, he would never fill her heart as much as NICHOLAS did. he was her son, her child and the definite image of his father and grandfather… and to know that henry wished for their son to travel to the northern parts of england to study and create new friendships with other noble sons, it sadden queen anne to know that her child would no longer be at her side. she approached nicholas in his quarters, a melancholy appearance washing over her aged face. queen anne didn’t enter right away, but instead hovered at the door for a moment before saying,
❝ do be careful, will you? i wouldn’t to die so early at this age to know that you were harmed.❞
