In my latest video, I’m exploring a question asked by my YouTube follower Suzanne Paul: Did Henry VIII regret Anne Boleyn’s execution?

One 16th century Frenchman claims that he’d heard that Henry VIII, in his dying days, had spoken of his regret for executing his innocent second wife, Anne Boleyn, but just how reliable is this source?

Join me as I look into this question, and please do share your views…
