Take A Note Coleen...

~On this day in British Royal history~
King Henry marries 4th wife, Anne of Cleves.
Anne of Cleves was Henry VIII's fourth wife, whom Henry found physically unattractive, calling her a "Flanders Mare." They married on January 6, 1540, but Henry decided to annul the marriage soon after. Queen Anne wisely cooperated, testifying that their marriage had never been consummated. The Earl of Essex, however, who had arranged the marriage, fell out of favor with the king and was beheaded on July 28, 1540.
Anne kept her head unlike Henry's 5th wife, Catherine of Aragon, whom the King DID find physically attractive. Is there a moral to this story? Hm.......
Hugs,
