    I believe that everything Henry loved about Anne-her wit, her charm, her boldness-are the same things that drove him to be rid of her. It was fine in a mistress, but not in a wife. Besides, he loved the chase. He loved what he couldnt have.
    I wouldnt go so far as to compare her to Eleanor of Aquitaine. Eleanor had land and power and titles in her own right. Shed been a queen already. Anne had none of that, and no real supporters. An attempted coup against Henry VIII, would not have gotten her anywhere.

    I’ve always wondered how Henry could be so obsessively in love with Anne that he would attempt to move Heaven and earth to have her.
    Then, a relatively short time later, he hated her enough to have her arrested and executed.
