21 October 1532 – Henry goes off to see Francis I, leaving Anne Boleyn behind

Posted By on October 21, 2019

On this day in Tudor history, 21st October 1532, King Henry VIII left his sweetheart, Anne Boleyn, the newly created Marquess of Pembroke, behind in Calais while he travelled to Boulogne to spend a few days at the French court with King Francis I.

Contemporary accounts tell us how beautifully the two kings were attired for their meeting, and there was a bit of a bromance, with Henry calling Francis his “beloved brother” and Francis instructing his sons to be “loving always” to Henry. However, Anne Boleyn was disappointed with the situation and you can find out more in this video that I did for my “on this day in Tudor history” series.

If you prefer reading to videos, then you can find out all the details in an article I wrote back in 2013 – click here – and if you prefer audio, you can listen to my podcast here.

If you like to get a daily Tudor fix, then please do subscribe to the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society YouTube Channel or my podcast as I do daily “on this day” talks.
