On this Day in History

On this day in 1536 - Anne Boleyn, the second wife of England's King Henry VIII, was beheaded after she was convicted of adultery.

Maybe that doesn't seem so interesting to you. But, Anne Boleyn looks a lot like my niece. Yep, it's true.

My hubby and I went to her castle over in England a few years ago and we walking through the stairwell when we came upon a painting and my husband turned to me and said, "Who does that look like?"

I looked up and started to laugh. It was like one of those scenes out of a vampire movie where you see your relative in an old (and I mean VERY old) painting, hanging on the wall.

Yes, she looked so much like my niece that I had to show her when I came back home.

Of course my niece didn't say much but I could see it in her eyes that she saw the resemblance...whether she wanted to admit it or not.

So, when I saw that this day in history was the day that Anne was beheaded, it made me think of my niece.
