The men who died in 1536 video

Posted By on May 19, 2016

Queen Anne Boleyn was, of course, not the only victim of her fall in 1536, five men were executed on 17th May 1536. Clare Cherry, my co-author (George Boleyn: Tudor Poet, Courtier and Diplomat), pays tribute to these men in this video talk.

    Remembering those very brave men. I think Mark Smeaton must have been terrified and thought his life would be spared if he pleaded guilty.
    The court must have been a very quiet frightening place to be on these terrible days.
    Thankyou for the video.
