However it is not sure how the title Marquess of Pembroke ceased to exist. 
There are 3 possibilities:

1: It may have merged by the crown on the day of her marriage;
2: It may have been forfeited on May 15th. 1536, when Anne was 
declared guilty of high treason;
3: It may have been extincted on Anne's death, without male heirs on 
May 19th. 1536.
