After Henry took his dead brother Arthur's bride the foundations were laid for one of the most spectacular reigns in English history. He was the perfect Renaissance prince, but his first wife Katherine of Aragon's failure to produce a male heir brought out his darker side and led to his dismantling of the established church in England. By the time of his death, he had married six times.

To my mind, the rumor that Anne Boleyn has got 6 fingers, is a fiction. In that era 6 fingers on  a hand meant that person was famous with witchcraft.

He would never fall in love or marry a witch not only by his own solution but under the certain pressure of his court and church.
