The trial of Anne Boleyn began on May 15, 1536.
On May 15, 1536, the trial of Anne Boleyn commenced. There was very little evidence that proved Anne committed any of the crimes of which she stood accused. In fact, records showed that she wasn’t even in the right places at the times of the dates in question. Anne maintained her innocence from the very beginning. But it was alleged that as a witch she had the ability to materialize anywhere at any time, lending credence to the accusation and witchcraft and demolishing any chances of defense on her part.
