George Boleyn, Brother of Anne, Beheaded (1536)

Henry VIII had two of his six wives beheaded, but the unpleasant consequences of his marriages did not apply only to his spouses. After Henry's first marriage was annulled, he took Anne Boleyn as his queen. Though she bore him the future Queen Elizabeth I, she produced no male heir, and he lost interest in her. In 1536, he had her imprisoned on questionable charges of adultery and incest—allegedly with her brother, George. Both were beheaded. What did George reportedly say before his execution? More...

His majesty Henry the VIII was a miserable son of the bitch. He acted like a sheer Bluebeard, killing poor women he married just for the sake of his sadistic inclinations and political ambitions. It is a disgrace for the present-day English royals to have such a ghoulish criminal as their predecessor. Monarchy sucks, IMHO. Boo hoo!
