How old was Anne Boleyn when she died? Google thought she was 435.

The picture shown here is a screen grab I took from a Google search back in 2012.

It gives the years that Anne Boleyn was married to Henry VIII as 1533 to 1936. That is 403 years! Now Anne Boleyn was born in 1501. If we take this Google result at face value she was 435 when she was executed on the orders of the King.

It was obviously a mistake. I suspect it got rectified soon after I spotted it. Google now gives Anne’s correct date of death, 1536.

I am glad I managed to grab the image for posterity. It is quite fun, and shows the mighty Google is not infallible.
