Synopsis

Anne Boleyn is perhaps the most engaging of Henry VIIIs Queens. For her he would divorce his wife of some twenty years standing, he would take on the might of the Roman Church and the Holy Roman Empire; he would even alienate his own people in order to win her favour and, eventually, her hand.

But before Henry came into her life Anne Boleyn had already wandered down loves winding path. She had learned its twists and turns during her youth spent at the courts of the Low Countries and France, where she had been sent as a result of her scandalous behaviour with her fathers butler and chaplain. Here her education had been directed by two of the strongest women of the age and one of the weakest.
