Did Anne Stanhope, Edward Seymour’s wife, really have scandalous affairs?

In the latest edition of my Tudor Fan Q&A series on YouTube, I answer a question about a character featured in Showtime’s “The Tudors” series.

Colleen (and King Louis, her beautiful cat!), from California, wanted to know whether Anne Seymour (née Stanhope), wife of Edward Seymour, really had scandalous affairs with Sir Francis Bryan and her own brother-in-law, Thomas Seymour, and if Thomas really fathered one of her sons.

If the show was anything to go by, Anne was a bit of a man-eating she-wolf! But was she really like that?
