1557: Anne of Cleves, the fourth of King Henry VIII's six wives, dies at age 41 in London, England, from what was likely cancer. Despite marrying Henry, the marriage was never consummated, and she was not crowned queen consort. Following an annulment, Anne was given a settlement by Henry and was thereafter referred to as "the King's Beloved Sister."
