Anne of Cleves by RandellaVortex Anne of Cleves by RandellaVortex
I loved the idea of having Anne in a graveyard because she outlived Henry and all his queens, so that's what I did :)

___________

Anne of Cleves (22 September 1515 – 16 July 1557) was the fourth wife of Henry VIII of England. The two were married on 6 January 1540 at the royal Palace of Placentia in Greenwich, London by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, despite Henry's very vocal misgivings. If his bride had objections, she kept them to herself. The phrase “God send me well to keep” was engraved around Anne’s wedding ring.

Anne was commanded to leave the Court on June 24 and on July 6 she was informed of her husband's decision to reconsider the marriage. In a short time, Anne was asked for her consent to an annulment, to which she agreed. The marriage was annulled on July 9, 1540, on the grounds both of non-consummation and of her pre-contract to Francis of Lorraine. She received a generous settlement, including Hever Castle, home of Henry's former in-laws, the Boleyns. Anne of Cleves House, in Lewes, Sussex, is just one of many properties she owned; she never lived there. Made a Princess of England and called "the King's Beloved Sister" by her former husband, Anne remained in England for the rest of her life.

beautifully done! and i love how you made her pretty. i think she's one of my favorite of the wives. i always imagine this image of her convincing henry to give her the title of his sister so she didn't have the fate of Catherine of Aragon and get cast off somewhere. plus, i read that she didn't get along with her family in germany
