On this day in 1536, 10th May, the Grand Jury of Middlesex met to decide on whether Queen Anne Boleyn, George Boleyn, Sir Henry Morris, Sir Francis Weston, William Brereton and Mark Smeaton should be sent to trial.
The jury decided that there was enough evidence to try these people and then drew up the indictment.
In today’s Fall of Anne Boleyn video, I explain what happened and gives a summary of the charges laid against the queen and the five men.
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.
