The Fall of Anne Boleyn

The Fall of Anne Boleyn

Available on My5
Over the course of this three-part series, historian Tracy Borman retraces the fateful last steps of Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn, as her fall from grace with the King results in her condemnation and execution in May, 1536. Already controversial, with her status as Queen both the catalyst and result of Henry's break with Rome, a series of miscarriages lost Anne favour with Henry. He looked for a reason to end the marriage, and Tracy discovers how, at each stage of her arrest, trial, and eventual execution, Anne found herself at the mercy of the intense political crisis she had helped to bring about.
