  • Notes 
    • Anne of Cleves (German: Anna; 22 September 1515 – 16 July 1557)[1] was Queen of England from 6 January 1540 to 9 July 1540 as the fourth wife of King Henry VIII.[1] The marriage was declared never consummated, and, as a result, she was not crowned queen consort. Following the annulment of their marriage, Anne was given a generous settlement by the King, and thereafter referred to as the King's Beloved Sister.[2][3] She lived to see the coronation of Queen Mary I, outliving the rest of Henry's wives.
