40 Facts About Anne Boleyn That May Help You Understand Her Better
Anne Boleyn was very disliked by the public.
Anne Boleyn had a reputation as a “sexually promiscuous status seeker” prior to her wedding to the King. The public was very fond of Catherine of Aragon and didn’t take too kindly to Anne’s usurping of her role as Henry’s wife and the Queen of England. However, Anne made very valiant efforts to ingratiate herself to the people during her time as Queen. She played the traditional role of a Queen who was working to make improvements in the Kingdom and particularly for the poor. She was also a bit of a fashionista and was known for her extravagant wardrobe. But her efforts to be loved by the people were largely unsuccessful. During her short life and reign as Queen, she remained disliked by much of the kingdom.
