King Henry VIII To Anne Boleyn

King Henry VIII (1491 - 1547) of England, changed the face of both politics and religion in 16th century Europe. Determined to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, Henry broke from the Catholic Church to establish his own Church of England. In 1533 he divorced Catherine to marry Anne Boleyn. The love that he expresses to Anne in the following letter would not last long; she would be executed for infidelity in 1536.

No more for fear of wearying you. Written by the hand of him who would willingly remain your
