40 Facts About Anne Boleyn That May Help You Understand Her Better
Anne Boleyn was coronated with a King’s crown.
Anne was officially made Queen in 1533. During her coronation, she was allowed to wear St. Edwards Crown, which is one of England’s most ancient and revered royal artifacts. It was incredible that she was coronated with this crown and it was quite an honor. When Henry and Catherine were crowned together, it was Henry who wore St. Edwards crown, while Catherine was only allowed to wear a headpiece that belonged to the royal’s wife. The crown was usually reserved for monarchies, so it seemed like Anne’s wearing it symbolized that she and the child she was carrying were the legitimate Royal Family. She later wore a crown that was made especially for her.
