    Hi Claire,

    I was wondering if there is any historical sources that allude to how Anne Boelyn’s mother felt about or dealt with the behavior of Henry VIII towards her children?

    Thanks

    I was wondering why it was over 1 year from the date of their marriage to Parliament declaring it valid. I had not realized that, thinking it was March of 1533 when this happened.
