ABC News reported on famous beheadings, many of which involved European kings and queens. The British royalty seems particularly prone to losing their heads. Henry VIII (1491 – 1547) went through six wives. “When Bluff King Hal tired of wife No. 2, Anne Boleyn, he sent her to the Tower of London and on trumped-up charges of treason and adultery,” ABC News says. “Anne, who had no illusions as to what came next, valiantly joked that she would be easy work for the headsman, having but ‘a little neck.’ An expert swordsman was imported from France in order to spare the disgraced queen from the clumsy ax strokes of the usual executioner.” How thoughtful.
“A few years later, in 1542, Henry’s fifth marriage ended when he signed the execution warrant for his young bride, Katherine Howard,” ABC News continues. “Katherine was afraid she’d do the wrong thing on the scaffold, so she asked her jailers to bring her a block so that she could practice laying her head on it.”
Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-1587), a Catholic and one-time Queen of France who posed a serious and ongoing threat to Elizabeth I, a Protestant, was beheaded after several husbands and years of imprisonment.
History.com tells us about Britain’s King Charles I, who was beheaded for treason on January 30, 1649. “Charles ascended to the English throne in 1625 following the death of his father, King James I. In the first year of his reign, Charles offended his Protestant subjects by marrying Henrietta Maria, a Catholic French princess. He later responded to political opposition to his rule by dissolving Parliament on several occasions and in 1629 decided to rule entirely without Parliament. In 1642, the bitter struggle between king and Parliament for supremacy led to the outbreak of the first English civil war.”
Cromwell defeated the king’s forces, leading to the King’s execution, and even went so far as to abolish the monarchy. He died in 1658, but that’s not the end of his story. The monarchy was restored and Charles II, the son of Charles I, was crowned king. “Oliver Cromwell was posthumously convicted of treason, and his body was disinterred from its tomb in Westminster Abbey and hanged from the gallows at Tyburn.”
There are many more, including Marie Antoinette of France – and the countless other members of the French aristocracy who perished during the French Revolution. When you start looking into it, you’ll find palace intrigue and power struggles find their way into the history pages century after century.
