    After the coronation of Elizabeth I, Anne Boleyn was venerated as a martyr and heroine of the English Reformation. This is because Elizabeth I was Anne Boleyn's daughter, and she had a strong desire to legitimize her mother's position and reputation. Elizabeth I viewed her mother as a victim of political and religious persecution, and she actively promoted Anne Boleyn's image as a symbol of Protestant resistance against Catholicism. Therefore, it was only after Elizabeth I became queen that Anne Boleyn's reputation was rehabilitated and she was celebrated as a martyr and heroine.
