6-Year Old Girl Gets Birthday Party Commemorating the Execution of Anne Boleyn

Anne Boleyn, a Queen of England under her husband, King Henry VII, lost her head when the king decided to move on to a new marital relationship. Some breakups are harder than others and Queen Anne definitely had a rough one.

The daughter of Edmund Kingsley, a stage actor and producer, appreciated the drama of that moment in history. It was the theme of her sixth birthday party. BuzzFeed reports:

“She said, ‘Well, my friend is getting unicorns, but I think what I'd really like is Henry VIII executing Anne Boleyn with Elizabeth I watching,” Kingsley told BuzzFeed News. [...]
Morrissey, a theater and movement director with a history background, was able to share with their daughter the details of the royal family who once occupied the Hampton Court Palace.
“I think that's where the seed was sown, seeing that castle and having a really fun day there. She just got really into the story of his big, fat, horrible king who had six wives," Kingsley said.
