Anne Boleyn by Amy License

Amberley Publishing

Nov 2017 | 624 pages

History

Original language: English

ISBN: 9781445643458

IPR Anne Boleynjpg

Anne Boleyn’s unconventional beauty inspired poets ‒and she so entranced Henry VIII with her wit, allure and style that he was prepared to set aside his wife of over twenty years and risk his immortal soul.  Eventually replacing the long-suffering Catherine of Aragon, Anne enjoyed a magnificent coronation and gave birth to the future Queen Elizabeth, but her triumph was short-lived.  With her usual eye for the telling detail, Amy Licence explores the nuances of this explosive and ultimately deadly relationship to answer an often-neglected question: what choice did Anne really have?  This book follows Anne from cradle to grave and beyond. Anne is vividly brought to life amid the colour, drama and unforgiving politics of the Tudor court.
