About

My name is Charlie Fenton and I started this blog because of my obsession with Anne Boleyn and the Tudors. This blog aims to give insight into the events of Anne Boleyn’s life through the research I am doing. I really enjoy studying history and hope you will enjoy reading it too. This blog will also review history books and documentaries as well as posting random history facts.

    this drawing of Anne Boleyn is as far as I know based on the presumably x ray portrait of Anne under Elizabeth 1 but to me her hair were more reddish brown and the eyes a bit darker ; due to the fact that x rays tend to enlighten features and of course eyes ; more over I have a question : Charlie , do we know whether Anne remains found burried were not confused with those of Cathy Howard ; are we 100 per cent sure they are hers ? William , passionate of british history , from France and was Anne nearly fluent in French ? third and last question : for you Charlie as a specialist of Anne , which is the best biographie in English about her? do thanks for my 3 questions as for an answer of yours , grandmercy !
