Anne Boleyn, Queen of England and second wife of King Henry VIII of England, is put on trial in London. Charged with treason, adultery, and incest, Anne Boleyn is condemned to death by a hand-picked jury.

She won't be mourned by many in England: her marriage to King Henry VIII has been incredibly unpopular. An Irishman named David Leonard was arrested in South Brent on August 20, 1535, for saying "God save king Henry and queen Katharine his wedded wife, and Anne his pleasure, for whom all England shall rue."

Margaret Chanseler had been arrested earlier for saying that Anne Boleyn was "a goggyll yed hoore," and "'God Save queen Katharine for she was a righteous Queen, and she trusted to see her Queen again." Guilliaum Cowschier was accused in March, 1535, of calling the king a "wretch, a caitiff, and not Christian man, having two wives and a concubine" as well as saying "Pity it was of the King's life to forsake the noble blood of the Emperor and to take a poor knight's daughter."
