Tudor Characters Competition

In August 2011 The Anne Boleyn Files held a special article competition inspired by Sandra Byrd’s novel, “To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn”, which told Anne Boleyn’s story through the eyes of her childhood friend and lady, Meg Wyatt.

Entrants had to write about a Tudor character, other than Anne Boleyn, who fascinated them. The brief was that the article should contain a brief bio plus an explanation of why the writer found the character so interesting. Our judges picked one overall winner who won a $50 Anne Boleyn Files voucher and a copy of “To Die For” and four runners-up who won copies of the novel.

The judges enjoyed reading every single article so a big thank you to all who entered.

    Oh wish I’d seen this before. I love the lesser known characters of the Tudor period, I like being creative with them, characters such as Chidioch Tichborne ( poet and Babbington plotter) Mark Smeaton, Robert Aske and St Robert Southwell ( St and martyr of the reformation, who’s family line had a connection with the Boleyns) also St Margaret Pole countess of Salisbury and also Anne Askew, these people have tragical lives and the ones with the tragical lives with not so much about them are the ones that really appeal to me. I hope there is chance to do something like this again.
