The Lady In The Tower

The Fall of Anne Boleyn

(1)
On 2 May, 1536, in an act unprecedented in English history, Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife, was imprisoned in the Tower of London. On 15 May, she was tried and found guilty of high treason and executed just four days later. Mystery surrounds the circumstances leading up to her arrest - did Henry VIII instruct Thomas Cromwell to fabricate evidence to get rid of her so that he could marry Jane Seymour? Did Cromwell, for reasons of his own, construct a case against Anne and her faction, and then present compelling evidence before the King? Or was Anne, in fact, as guilty as charged?

Never before has there been a book devoted entirely to Anne Boleyn's fall; now in Alison Weir's richly researched and impressively detailed portrait, we have a compelling story of the last days of history's most charismatic, controversial and tragic heroines.

it is all about detail
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Dinklage am 16.11.2011

This is a book totally about the last days of Anne Boleyn. The arrest of Anne and her "lovers", the lawcourt and finally the execution of Anne. The book is really packed with details, withouth losing the main lines of the book. Very convincing book about the trial of Anne Boleyn
