On this day in 1536, 3rd May, a shocked Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, wrote to King Henry VIII regarding what he’d heard about Queen Anne Boleyn. Meanwhile, the investigation into the queen wasn’t quite going according to plan as the arrested men were not ‘playing ball’.
I give details on what happened on 3rd May 1536, including how Queen Anne Boleyn unwittingly got Sir Francis Weston into big trouble.
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.
