Our George Boleyn biography is finally available! We aimed for the end of April for its release and we made it – phew! George Boleyn: Tudor Poet, Courtier and Diplomat is available as a paperback and kindle on Amazon, an ebook on Lulu.com, and will also be rolling out to Kobo, Barnes & Noble, the Book Depository, Nook, the iBookstore and bookstores over the next few weeks and months. Here are the details…
George Boleyn has gone down in history as being the brother of the ill-fated Queen Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII, and for being executed for treason, after being found guilty of incest and of conspiring to kill the King.
This biography allows George to step out of the shadows and brings him to life as a court poet, royal favourite, keen sportsman, talented diplomat and loyal brother. Clare Cherry and Claire Ridgway chart his life from his spectacular rise in the 1520s to his dramatic fall and tragic end in 1536.
George Boleyn: Tudor Poet, Courtier and Diplomat is divided into three sections – Beginnings, Career and Influence, and End of an Era – and topics include:
- George Boleyn’s poetry
- Personal attributes and social pursuits
- George’s marriage to Jane Parker
- The Reformation Parliament and the League of Schmalkalden
- George the Diplomat
- The fall of the Boleyns, arrests and trials
- The aftermath of their fall
