40 Facts About Anne Boleyn That May Help You Understand Her Better

By  | 

Anne tried to get her own allies to seduce the King and act as spies when she found he kept mistresses.

Cunningham & Mortimer, 1842

Despite the work that went into his being allowed to actually marry Anne Boleyn, King Henry didn’t stay faithful in any sense of the word. He began having affairs again and Anne found herself overcome with jealousy. In an effort to keep tabs on her husband, Anne enlisted the help of her allies and members of her court to seduce him. She was afraid that he would turn to one of her enemies for love, who would then try to turn Henry against her so they could be queen. Rumor has it she convinced one of her own cousins to seduce him (either Mary or Margaret Shelton). But seeing her relatives carry on affairs with her husband only made Anne more jealous.
