Monument to Those Put to Death in the Queen’s Residence Courtyard.

There is a monument at the end of the Queen’s Residence Courtyard to the people, including Anne Boleyn and one other of HenryVIII’s wives. Ironically, it has a glass pillow in the middle as if the beheadings etc. were gently done.

It is said that one of the women refused to put her head on the chopping block and her head was severed with one swipe of a sword with her standing up.

Note the tasseled glass pillow in the center…. I don’t think that was what the chopping block looked like…
