A monarch is a king or queen. The Tudors were a dynasty of English Kings and Queens that ruled from 1485-1603; they were King Henry VII, King Henry VIII, King Edward VI, Queen Mary I, and Queen Elizabeth I.
MonarchyMonarchy implies rule or the power of government in the hands of an individual who has inherited the role and expects to bequeath it to the descendants. Currently there exist thirty-one monarchs reigning over forty-five extant sovereign monarchies in the world, sixteen of which are Commonwealth Realms that formally recognize Queen Elizabeth II as their head of state and Prince Charles as heir.~MAIYA BOWMAN

The man we know as Octavian was Julius Caesar's adopted son and heir. He was a master politician, a military victor, and became the sole ruler of Rome, changing the government from republic to principate. He was voted the title "Augustus" by the senate and from that time on he was known as Caesar Augustus or simply Augustus. He is sometimes referred to as the first Roman emperor by historians, although the Romans never used the word "emperor".
Queen Anne Boleyn (c1501-07- 05/19/1536), Henry's second wife. She was beheaded at the Tower of London on 19th of may 1536. The unfortunate Anne was charged with incest, adultery and High Treason, despite unconvincing evidence. The charges against her were trumped by Thomas Cromwell (Henry's Chief Minister at the time) so that Henry could get her out of the way and be free to marry again. Poetic justice prevailed however - Thomas Cromwell was himself beheaded at the Tower of London on 28th July 1540. What goes around comes around... Anne had only one child, Elizabeth (Henry's second daughter) who went on to be one of the most powerful and influential monarchs in British history - Queen Elizabeth I. Ironically, we now know that the father is responsible for determining the sex of a child. Henry's difficulty in producing a male heir to the throne was his problem, not Anne's. Talk about unfair dismissal!

Elizabeth I was never burnt. Her mother, Anne Boleyn, was the first queen executed. And Charles I was the first king executed. Mary I and many Catholics would have loved to get rid of Elizabeth as heretic as a Protestant or a plotter as heir to the throne but were unsuccessful.
