I havent actually cried for her but i certainly do get emotional How it all went so wrong love turning to hate in such a short amount of time is heartbreaking I think that there has been so many films, novels, plays and myths about her that some people can forget she was an actual living person with all the same thoughts and feelings as us now She lost everything, her beloved brother was dead, her family was humiliated and worst of all she had to leave her young daughter behind not knowing what was going to happen to her How she held it together on that scaffold is astounding she was so brave and couragous I myself have been betrayed by people i loved and trusted and Anne is an inspiration to me.
I would love to visit the Chapel just so i can be close to her for a few moments unfortunatly my partner doesnt share the same love of history i have maybe i’ll take my daughter when she gets olderx

Leanne I think most of us here have a partner that doesn’t share our love of anything historical, so you certainly aren’t on your own there.
However you aren’t married to a dinosaur whose only real useage is compost LOL. Although now and again you will find that our historical minds will come in handy when they are doing something that requires them to use a fact from history. Such as the other night when Dinosaur was on one of his many forums (I call them his soapbox moments) and a question was posed to do with the reformation, so for once I wasn’t told to belt up about history.
I too would like to go to St Peter ad Vincula too I’m quite lucky in the sence that I live in Kent and that Anne probably hunted with Henry down here and of course stayed at Rochester castle is literely 5 minutes away by car, and of course we all know that Anne of Cleves stayed there proir to her state entry to London.
It’s a good job we have this site so that us Tudorians and generally history buffs can throw our ideas around in and have a few good laughs along the way.

I wept uncontrollably during Anne’s execution in The Tudors. Natalie did an amazing job of showing Anne’s courage at the end. She never wavered in her strength and conviction. Not to mention the background music, which added a certain atmosphere. I believe the song was Jerusalem.
I did as well, it was so well portrayed. I also cried long before her death, I think it was because I knew it was coming.
I also cried when I watched and read The Other Boleyn Girl.

My name’s Saskia Black. I’m making a radio documentary on Anne Boleyn supporters. I’m a fellow supporter myself and was really touched by all your replies.
I was wondering if anyone would be willing to be interviewed? It’d be a chance for you share your thoughts and feelings on Anne and why history has served her unjustly.
As it’ll be pitched for the BBC, unfortunately I can only talk to people who are based in the UK.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
