Anne Boleyn, "The Most Happy"

Anne Boleyn, queen of England (executed 19 May 1536)

Anne Boleyn's story is so well known that I won't add much here--except to point out the deep irony of the motto she selected for her coronation on 1 June 1533, "le pleuse heureuse" ("the most happy").

She was executed at the Tower of London on 19 May 1536.
