Travel Guide

Travel the BookTrail way to Kleve

An interesting story which starts in Schwanenburg Castle in Kleve.

Anne of Cleves (22 September 1515 – 16 July 1557) was Queen of England from 6 January to 9 July 1540 .

She was the fourth wife of King Henry VIII but the marriage was declared unconsummated and, as a result, she was not crowned queen consort. He had apparently sent for her on the strength of her portrait as he was looking fora new wife. Anne was recommended to him. When she arrived, their first meeting was a disaster as she apparently didn’t know who he was. Henry remained favourable to her however and gave her a generous settlement. She might never have been his true wife, but she was always known as the King’s Beloved Sister.She stayed involved in royal life and attended court and many events thereafter.
