^ Is that the Lancelot de Carles poem? The historian G W Bernard comes to the conclusion that Anne was guilty of having an affair with Norris and probably with Mark Smeaton in his book ‘Anne Boleyn: Fatal Attractions’. Can’t agree with his conclusions that Anne was actually guilty but it’s an interesting read nonetheless.

It’s that poem which Bernard uses to argue for Anne’s guilt, and it’s also that poem where Lady Worcester is refered to as saying that Anne had sinned with her brother. But Bernard doesn’t suggest that Anne and George were guilty of incest. If he was using this poem as proof of guilt then surely he would have to argue the viability of the incest charge, yet he doesn’t. I have never been able to fathom the logic of his argument.
