Was Anne Boleyn sent abroad because of her scandalous behaviour?
Posted By Claire on April 4, 2019
Yes, you read that right! The question that I am answering in the latest video of my “Questions about Anne Boleyn” series is “Was Anne Boleyn sent abroad because of her scandalous behaviour?”
In my video, I explain what provoked people to send me emails asking me this question, where the idea that Anne Boleyn was sent away to France at the age of 15 because of her scandalous behaviour (affairs with her father’s chaplain and butler) originates, and whether there is any truth to it.
I dismiss the story as a myth, as propaganda, and I explain exactly why I believe this.
I hope you find it interesting.
In the video, I mention my online history course “The Life of Anne Boleyn” and you can find out more about this 18-lesson course at https://medievalcourses.com…. It’s completely online and open internationally.
