Anne Boleyn: Arrest, Trial, Execution

Over the course of this three-part series, historian Tracy Borman retraces the fateful last steps of Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn, as her fall from grace with the King results in her condemnation and execution in May 1536. With her status as queen both the catalyst and result of Henry's break with Rome, a series of miscarriages cause Anne to fall out of favor with Henry, who looks for a reason to end the marriage. At each stage of her arrest, trial, and eventual execution, Anne finds herself at the mercy of the intense political crisis she had helped to bring about.
