Question from Meg - Humanists in Anne Boleyn's household

I have been thinking recently about the effects that some of Henry VIII's wives had on Renaissance Humanism, and was just wondering whether Anne Boleyn had any notable humanists within her household. I know that Catherine of Aragon had Mountjoy, and others that Katherine Parr had, but I can't seem to find anything about Anne that is not related to her religious or familial affiliations. Any thoughts?

There was the Humanist scholar Nicholas Bourbon from France who came to the English court.

The Ives biography on Anne Boleyn has info about him.
