  1. I pity the mother.
    And the wife of an ever-faithful servant to the king’s interests.
    Discrete as she was, I think she could not admit, nor understand the fate on this occasion.
    I hate the words of Charles Brandon adressed to Thomas boleyn in “the Tudors”.
    If only they had been true, it would have been – at least – an explanation for the parents.
    I’d rather guess that their daughter’srise and fall was above their comprehension.
    They both died so soon after her horrible execution
