Henry and Anne’s marriage was never consummated. Only months after Henry married Anne he asked her for annulment of their marriage. Which Anne agreed too. He asked Anne to leave the court and there marriage was then annulled. However, Henry made sure that Anne was well looked after and comfortable for the rest of her life. He also gave her a title which was “The King’s Beloved Sister”. Anne died short before her 42nd Birthday and the most likely cause of Anne’s death was cancer.
