S3.43 Anne Boleyn: Biography

Our Odyssey through the Six Wives of Henry VIII now turns to Anne Boleyn, the most controversial of Henry's consorts. Anne has been cast as the definitive 'other woman', turning Henry's head away from Katherine of Aragon and helping to bring about the Reformation, in which Henry broke a near millennia association with Rome to declare himself Supreme Governor of the Church of England. In the first of three episodes, today we cover Anne's biography, seeing how her international schooling made her stand out at Henry's court. How does Anne capture Henry's heart? How does she secure her place as England's queen? And why does it all go so terribly wrong? Tune in to find out!
