Did Anne Boleyn have much to do with Elizabeth?

Posted By on March 29, 2019

In this instalment of my series “Questions about Anne Boleyn”, I answer the question “Did Anne Boleyn have much of a relationship with Elizabeth?”

I consider whether Anne Boleyn was disappointed with her daughter’s birth, whether there is evidence that she didn’t bond with Elizabeth, and how she was involved with the princess’s early life and upbringing. I also look at the prevailing myth that Elizabeth I distanced herself from her mother’s memory – just how true is that?

I realise that not everyone enjoys video talks, so as this video is based on an article I wrote a few years ago, you can read that article if you prefer – Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I.
