Anne of Cleves

Joss Stone

From of the heartland of Protestantism, Henry‘s German fourth wife was picked out for him by Reformation leader Thomas Cromwell. Having only seen a painted portrait before agreeing to marry her, he was disappointed with her looks and quickly insisted upon an annulment to their unconsummated marriage. However, the timid, docile Anne remained in the King’s friendship and was often referred to as “his beloved sister.”
