20 May 1536 – Henry VIII and Jane Seymour get betrothed – The Fall of Anne Boleyn

Posted By on May 20, 2019

King Henry VIII wasted no time in May 1536. With wife number 2 dead and buried, he quickly moved on to wife number 3, getting betrothed to Jane Seymour the day after Anne Boleyn’s execution and marrying her ten days later.

I give all the details in today’s final Fall of Anne Boleyn video, including the “murmurings” about the king and his new sweetheart.

I’m doing these “Fall of Anne Boleyn” videos daily until 19th May and I started on 24th April. You can catch up with them on the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society Youtube Channel.

Claire holds Anne Boleyn’s Books of Hours

Posted By on May 19, 2019

Hever Castle was the childhood home of Queen Anne Boleyn and is now home to portraits and artefacts linked to her, including two Books of Hours.

Thanks to the team at Hever (thank you Alison, Owen and Helen!), Claire Ridgway, author of “The Fall of Anne Boleyn: A Countdown”, had the honour and pleasure of taking a close look at Anne Boleyn’s Books of Hours and even holding them.

In this video, Claire interviews Hever Castle supervisor, Owen Emmerson, about these two beautiful books.

Also, on the morning of the 19th May, the anniversary of Queen Anne Boleyn’s execution, Hever Castle invited me to go up on the roof and help hoist Queen Anne Boleyn’s flag! Exciting!
