25 April 1536 – God will send unto Us heirs male – The Fall of Anne Boleyn

Posted By on April 25, 2019

On this day in 1536, King Henry VIII suddenly seemed very hopeful of a Prince of Wales to succeed him. Did he know something that everyone else didn’t?

Was Henry VIII hopeful that Queen Anne Boleyn could still give him a son, or had he, in his mind, moved onto his new flame, Jane Seymour?

Find out more about what Henry VIII said in today’s video, which is part of a series counting down to Queen Anne Boleyn’s execution on 19th May 1536.

24 April 1536 – The legal machinery begins – The Fall of Anne Boleyn

Posted By on April 24, 2019

As promised, here is the first video in my “The Fall of Anne Boleyn” video series for the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society YouTube channel.

I’ll be doing these every day, up to an including 19th May.

On this day in 1536, Sir Thomas Audley, Lord Chancellor to King Henry VIII, set up two commissions of oyer and terminer, one for the county of Middlesex and one for the county of Kent.

What were these commissions and what did they have to do with the fall of Anne Boleyn, if anything?

Find out in today’s video:

The royals and Maundy Thursday

The royals and Maundy Thursday

Today, the day before Good Friday, is Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday. It’s the day that commemorates the Last Supper, that final and special meal that Jesus Christ had with his disciples, and where he washed their feet. As I’ve explained in previous articles, the Gospels’ account of Jesus washing his disciples’ feet was remembered […]
