The Whore and the Virgin: Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I

Friday
8th November
15.30-17.00

Of all the women in Henry VIII's life, none are more famed, studied and celebrated than his second wife, Anne Boleyn, and their daughter Elizabeth I. Anne not only became Henry`s queen, but she also played a major role in some of the most important policy decisions ever taken in England. Yet she over-reached herself and ended vilified, disgraced and humiliated before suffering execution on 19th May 1536. Her daughter Elizabeth was not yet three years old, yet from such tragic and unfavourable origins, she rose to become one of the strongest and most powerful women in English history.
Join two Tudor historians - Alison Weir and Sarah Gristwood - as they speak about Anne's fall from grace and the daughter who became, in the opinion of many, England's greatest monarch.
