Synopsis:

This fascinating and truly original study of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second queen, tackles a series of longstanding and fundamental convictions about her personality and her fate. There has remained a compelling mystery surrounding the events that led to Anne's execution in 1536. Scholars have speculated that she was executed as the result of a factional conspiracy masterminded by Henry's minister Thomas Cromwell, but this conclusion may be reached only by accepting uncritically the distorted evidence of hostile sixteenth-century writers. Professor Warnicke treats this evidence as prejudiced testimony and develops a more reliable picture of Anne by analyzing her life within the framework of social and religious values, including family loyalty, and honor, and her fears about witches and the birth of deformed children. By bringing to bear these values on questions about Anne's role at court, it is possible to view the queen's execution as the result of Henry's profound concern about the continuation of the Tudor dynasty.
