Question from Alia - Thoughts on Anne Boleyn's execution anniversary

As some of you probably know, today is the anniversary of Anne Boleyn Queen of England and Marquess of Pembroke's execution day. Join me in honoring her with any GOOD opinion, cool info, anything you want to say really. Queen Anne Boleyn, RIP.


  1. I agree with Taryn. It seems like there is not enough concrete info. on her. I wish there was some tour/exhibition on her either in England or over here in the US. She has a huge following, and speaking as one of the devoted, I wish historians would actively continue researching and learning more about this amazing woman.

  2. I've been running a day-by-day anniversary section on Anne Boleyn on my blog "Confessions of a Ci-Devant," so I thought I'd join in here. It ends with this: and begins with big, BIG thank you to this website for sparking my ability to discuss the period on-line. It's an incredible place and resource!) I think what Anne had was a genuinely fascinating character, with great gifts, virtues and talents and some serious flaws.

  3. I think Anne Boleyn was one of the most extraordinary characters in history, male or female. Whn you think of it, she must have been something, for King Henry to not only fight such a prolonged fight for his freedom from Catherine of Aragon, but to take on and then break with the catholic church, in order to make her his wife and queen. She was intelligent, witty, compassionate, but also ruthless when the need arose. She was also extremely brave--she had more courage than a lot of men. She was one neat lady.
