Maybe Henry was not the father of the concubine's pregnancies after Elizabeth?
Of course Henry was the father of Anns pregnancies. As I said before, she was smart enough to make sure all her children were Henry's. Look at the evidence against her. She was accused of adultery two or three days after the birth of Elizabeth and one man wasn't in the area when she was accused with him.
Henry even makes a statement. If he really thought she was unfaithful, he would have had her burned at the stake, (which was the law). Instead, he had her beheaded by a French swordsman instead of the ax. Smeaton's sentence was commuted to beheading instead of hanged, drawn, and quartered.
Henry wanted her gone, he wanted her dead so he would be a widower and there would be absolutely no question of legitimacy of Jane Seymour's children.
Henry always got what he wanted.
