It is nearly always depicted as being [[MadeOfPlasticine surprisingly easy]] to cut through someone's whole neck and spinal column, even in one blow to a moving target. While Anne Boleyn did get beheaded with one stroke, most pre-guillotine beheadings took at least three strokes. Boleyn's executioner was--by request--a professional swordsman who would know how to cleanly behead someone. And that's when the target is helpfully restrained; in an actual SwordFight it would have been even harder to pull off and would also have been serious overkill. A direct cut through the skull into the brain--or one to sever the windpipe or the large blood vessels in the neck--was usually more expedient.
