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.

Clearly not a contemporary portrait.  I have seen this one before though..

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

Has anyone seen the "new" Anne Boleyn Picture? They are claiming its her at 14.

http://www.thereddotgallery.com/national-trust-blickling-exhibition/an-early-portrait-of-anne-boleyn/

Things that I think are odd, the style of hood seems off and it seem WAY to much like the "B" portrait (my avatar). Thoughts?

There is something definitely " off " about that portrait. It looks very naive for one thing. Would be interesting to know wether the portrait has been dated by art specialists wouldn't it?
Thanks for posting it GDLynn, very interesting.

I love anything to do with Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I.
 
Which books do people recommend about them.
 
I have read:
The other Boleyn girl
The Boleyn Inheritance
The Queen of Subtleties - Suzannah Dunn
The secret Diary of Annne Boleyn
 
That is all i can remember off the top of my head

Well there are masses of good books out there to enjoy.
Six Wives of Henry VIII by David Starkey is excellent and imo the best out of a choice of Antonia Fraser and Alison Weir.
For Catherine of Aragon, my go to book is " Catherine of Aragon, Henry's Spanish Queen" by Giles Tremlett.
For Anne Boleyn, no Tudor bookshelf is complete without " The Life And Death of Anne Boleyn", by Eric Ives.
So there is a starter for you.x

I heard about an incident that allegedly happened in the late 19th Century.

A guard was on duty at the Tower Of London, when he saw the figure of a woman approaching him.  He had no idea who she was or what she was doing there.  He was about to challenge her, when he noticed that she had no head!

The accounts vary as to what happened to that poor guard.  Some say he dropped dead of shock, others say he went mad with fear.  Of course, this whole incident may be just an urban legend.

Poor Anne Boleyn has supposedly haunted the Tower Of London for almost 500 years now.  No doubt there are many stories like this.
