Overview

This edition presents the complete, authentic collection of love letters between King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

Boleyn was Henry's second wife, gaining his favour after the his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, failed to provide him with the male heir he dearly craved. By all historic accounts, their initial romance was passionate and the epitome of courtly manners. This narrative is reinforced by the letters between the two as they encircled and eyed one another, awaiting the chance to commence romantic liaisons.

The education and eloquence of both authors is in full display here, and the letters authenticity is undisputed. Although in time the marriage was to sour, with deadly consequences for Anne Boleyn, there is little reason to doubt the initial passion and thrill both experienced at the outset of their intimacy.

This edition of the famous love letters is complete and unabridged, with additional notes appended by James Halliwell-Phillips, a knowledgeable scholar of the Tudors, England in the seventeenth century, and William Shakespeare.
