A feast day and Anne Boleyn’s wedding day!

Posted By on January 25, 2020

25th January is the Feast of the Conversion of St Paul, an important day in Tudor times, but it was also an important day for Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, for it was their official wedding day.

Now, I believe that they were actually already married, having been married secretly on 14th November 1532, on their return from Calais, but their wedding on 25th January 1533 was an official one at court, at Whitehall Palace, although it was still kept secret for some time.

Find out more about this in my video from last year:

Or, if you prefer reading articles then you can read my article 25 January 1533 – A St Paul’s Day wedding for Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII.

In today’s “on this day in Tudor history” talk, I explain the background to St Paul’s Day and how it was celebrated in Tudor times…
