Anne Boleyn Files visitor Esther Hyams is a history student and poet and, like many of us, has been moved and inspired by the story of Anne Boleyn, Queen Consort of England and second wife to Henry VIII.

Esther has been kind enough to write a series of poems about Anne Boleyn for The Anne Boleyn Files and I will publish them here as Esther writes them. Esther is incredibly talented and I’m so pleased that Anne Boleyn’s story lives on through today’s poets and writers.
