Anne Boleyn day competitionI like to commemorate the anniversary of Anne Boleyn’s execution on 19th May with a special ‘Anne Boleyn Day’ competition so here’s this year’s competition – I hope you enjoy it!

I usually do some kind of article competition but I wanted to do something different this year, something that everybody would be able to participate in: a quiz/scavenger hunt.

All you have to do is answer twelve questions. Many of the answers can be found here on The Anne Boleyn Files (tip: use the Google search box in the right hand menu bar) and you can easily find the answers to the others online. Once you’ve answered all twelve, simply email your answers to me at One lucky winner will receive an Anne Boleyn themed goody bag.
