Full question - Did Jane Rochford admit to lying about Anne and George's incest? Lourdes

It is said that she confessed to lying about Anne and George's incest and repented just before she was executed in 1542 for her involvement in Carherine Howard's adultery but that is now thought to be a myth. There is no firm evidence that she was the key witness for the prosecution or that she accused them of incest at all. The "single woman" who is mentioned in contemporary reports could be the Countess of Worcester.
