2 May 1536 – Queen Anne Boleyn is arrested at Greenwich

Posted By on May 2, 2017

On this day in history, on the morning of 2nd May 1536, Henry VIII’s friend and groom of the stool, Sir Henry Norris, was escorted to the Tower of London following his interrogation the previous day.

He wasn’t the only person taken to the Tower on 2nd May 1536, Queen Anne Boleyn was arrested at Greenwich Palace and then taken to the royal apartments of the Tower of London, arriving there at approximately 5pm.

To commemorate Anne Boleyn’s arrest, I’d like to share with you my account of this day in 1536 from the audio version of my book The Fall of Anne Boleyn: A Countdown, which is available from Amazon and Audible:
