Endless things I love Anne Boleyn ♔ The Most Happy

Anne Boleyn is one of the most controversial women in English history; we argue over her, we pity and admire and revile her, we reinvent her in every generation. She takes on the colour of our fantasies and is shaped by our preoccupations: witch, bitch, feminist, sexual temptress, cold opportunist. She is a real woman who has acquired an archetypal status and force, and one who patrols the nightmares of good wives; she is the guilt-free predator, the man-stealer, the woman who sets out her sexual wares and extorts a fantastic price. She is also the mistress who, by marrying her lover, creates a job vacancy. Her rise is glittering, her fall sordid. God pays her out. The dead take revenge on the living. The moral order is reasserted.”

     ”If it be true that is openly reported of the Queen’s Grace, I am in such perplexity that my mind is clean amazed; for I never had better opinion in woman than I had in her; which maketh me to think that she should not be culpable. Next to Your Grace, I was most bound to her of all creatures living. I wish and pray for her that she may declare herself inculpable and innocent, I loved her not a little for the love which I judged her to bear towards God and His Gospel.”

 — Archbishop Thomas Cranmer’s comments about Anne when writing to Henry VIII after her arrest.

I wouldn’t regard myself as a success just yet, and I don’t want to jinx it, but I do feel vindicated by what I’ve achieved so far.”
