BOLEYN, Anne (c.1507-36)

Henry VIII's second wife, Anne Boleyn, had six fingers on her right hand and is often described as having three breasts, though more prudish sources refer to the extra one as a cyst on her neck.

After Anne Boleyn was executed in 1536, her heart was stolen. It was discovered exactly 300 years later, buried under a church organ in Suffolk.
