On This Day in Tudor History

On this day in Tudor history 1536 Anne Boleyn miscarried her last child. It was an especially sad event as physicians who examined the fetus agreed that it appeared to be male. If Anne had given Henry his much sought after heir, her position would likely have been cemented. I wrote an information article on this topic last year, you can read it here.

  1. Imagine if the son has been born full term and survived. What a change for English history!

    1. I agree! Who knows what we would think or know about Anne had this baby lived.
