Found this labeled as Anne-- I find that suspicious, first--the ruff she wears is plainly in the style of the later 1500s, when her daughter Elizabeth was queen, and secondly, her face looks too different to be in fact the personage it is labeled as.

In looking at all the portraits of all the wives someone said that by modern standards Anne is the most attractive. I tend to disagree and think Anne of Cleves is #1 with Jane Seymour being last on the list.
I was trying to read Starkey's book on the six wives but he is too misogynistic and attributes actions and thoughts to Anne that he has no way of knowing about. One that immediately comes to mind is that Anne assured Henry that his 1527 arguments against his marriage to Wolsey's counsel would be successful. According to Starkey everything was Anne's fault.

The chapel shown in the photograph is actually St Peter's Church, Hever.

Has anyone else read "In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn" - it covers over 70 places that Anne may have visited over the course of her life
