10 kings and queens of England and their exhumed bodies!
March 10, 2016 7:39pm CST
This article speaks of Anne Boleyn and of Edward VI. I've not read all of the accounts yet but thought I'd pop the link down nonetheless. I had chills just reading about Edward VI.
Whether uncovered accidentally, or out of morbid curiosity, here are 10 Kings and Queens of England whose remains were examined centuries after they met their end.

That is quite a long article. I just read the part about Anne Boleyn because I'm quite fascinated with her life even though I don't like the way she pursued the King while he was married to his first wife. But she did get her just deserts in the end. Just can't believe that she's the mother of Queen Elizabeth I.

You did not read about Elizabeth's Brother than? (it was right under Anne Boleyn's). I have quite a different perspective on it than you do. I don't believe that Anne was completely to blame. Henry was already under stress and need of a son, sure Anne should not have promised him she would give him one but then I can't say I blame her there either. Henry was smitten with her either way, and she was very much the victim of his circumstance. I also don't believe she cheated on him in anyway.

@ScribbledAdNauseum That is true. I believe that Anne was faithful to Henry throughout their marriage but because Henry wanted to marry someone who can give him a son, he had to find a way to get rid of Anne. No, I didn't read about Elizabeth's brother. I really cannot differentiate all the kings of England with their Roman numerals at the back. I only know of Henry the Eighth because of his six wives. The others are just Edward or Henry or Richard or Charles followed by some Roman numerals. They didn't stand out for me to remember them.
