For information on Anne Boleyn’s badge or crest, please read my article “Anne Boleyn’s Badge“.
Claire, do you sell reproductions of the badges of all of King Henry’s wives??
I just visited the Tower on Thursday past, and I asked our Beefeater Mark Anderson where Anne’s Badge was inscribed and he said there was none, that I must be thinking of Jane Grey’s. He told me this twice! I had to look through your website to find this information because I knew that I had read it here! I will be printing this and taking in back on my next trip to the Tower on Oct 23rd!!

We have photos to prove it! How funny! He probably just doesn’t realise it’s there as the Lady Jane Grey one is more famous. Tim, who has been recently, says that it is in the alcove on the right hand side of the big fireplace upstairs in the Beauchamp Tower. In my photo of it, there is a number 31 just to its bottom right, but I’m not sure whether it’s the number of that carving, or the one next to it, but it should help you find it. I’ll email you my photo.
