Picture of The Six Wives Of Henry VIII Anne Boleyn.

Anne Boleyn: This second episode of the series overlaps with the first, and thus begins when Queen Anne and King Henry are already estranged. After several pregnancies, Anne has provided her husband with only one surviving child, Princess Elizabeth. Extremely unpopular with both the public and the aristocracy, Anne has few friends to protect her when Henry’s eye lights upon the virginal Jane Seymour.
