Summary

Few queens of England are as famous as Anne Boleyn.

Yet, who was this woman? What was her life like before Henry VIII became infatuated with her? And just how influential was she in reshaping English religious and political life during the early years of the Reformation?

Marie Louise Bruce's engrossing account of Anne Boleyn charts the rise and fall of this remarkable young woman through the course of her short life, from her early days at Hever Castle, to the luxurious courts of France and England, to her terrifying last days in the Tower of London.

By utilizing a wealth of primary sources, including the love letters between Henry and Anne along with innumerable documents written by courtiers and ambassadors, Bruce brings to life the splendor of the Tudor court and its most famous king and queen.

Sadly lacking in objection

I wouldn’t bother with this ‘biography’ of Anne Boleyn. It delivers theories and speculation as fact. It’s irresponsible story telling basically.
An objective and fair biography of Anne is called The Lady in The Tower, by Alison Weir. I highly recommend that book.
