40 Facts About Anne Boleyn That May Help You Understand Her Better
Despite being unpopular during her life, Anne Boleyn remains one of the most fascinating figures in history.
Anne Boleyn arguably changed the course of history in England and certainly for the monarchy. She did things on her own terms and refused to become a mistress of King Henry VIII’s and instead insisted on marriage. She worked independently of the King, choosing her own ladies and running her own household according to her strict standards. She was also outspoken and refused to step back in Henry’s shadow. Anne was also instrumental in the English Reformation and influenced Henry’s actions, like appointing reforming bishops. It can be said that if it wasn’t for Anne Boleyn, England could still be a Catholic country today.
