12 April 1533 – Anne Boleyn causes quite a stir

Posted By on April 12, 2019

I thought I’d share today’s “on this day in Tudor history” video with you as it concerns our favourite person, Queen Anne Boleyn.

On this day in Tudor history, 12th April 1533, Easter Eve, Anne Boleyn made her first public appearance following Henry VIII’s instructions to his royal council, the previous day, to recognise Anne as his rightful wife and queen.

For her first public appearance as Henry VIII’s queen consort, Anne chose to attend mass in the Queen’s closet at Greenwich Palace. She was accompanied by sixty ladies and was described as “loaded with jewels, clothed in a robe of cloth of gold friese”. It must have been quite a spectacle for those at court that day!
