I'm currently reading Alison Weir's bio of Mary Boleyn and there is something that I'm curious about. Weir says:
"In April 1535, as we have seen, John Hale mentioned that 'the Queen's Grace might not suffer her sister to be in the court', and so it is unlikely that Anne and Mary were ever reconciled".
Is it true that Anne couldn't "suffer" her sister to be at court? Is this John Hale the same person who claimed that Mary Boleyn's son was Henry VIII's child? I'm very curious. Thank you in advance.
