During the spring of 1536 in Tudor England, events conspire to bring down Anne Boleyn, the Queen of England. The coup against the Queen results in the brutal executions of six innocent people - Anne Boleyn herself, her brother, and four courtiers - and the rise of a new Queen.
Drawing on sixteenth century letters, eye witness accounts and chronicles, Claire Ridgway leads the reader through the sequence of chilling events one day at a time, telling the true story of Anne Boleyn's fall. The Fall of Anne Boleyn: A Countdown is presented in a diary format, allowing readers to dip in, look up a particular date, or read from start to finish. Special features include mini biographies of those involved, a timeline of events and full referencing.
* Why was Anne Boleyn executed?
* Who was responsible for Anne Boleyn's fall?
* Was Anne Boleyn's execution a foregone conclusion and was she framed?
Claire Ridgway, creator of The Anne Boleyn Files website and best-selling author of The Anne Boleyn Collection, continues her mission to share the real truth about Anne Boleyn.
The Fall of Anne Boleyn: A Countdown is a guide to the chain of events leading up to Anne Boleyn's execution on the 19th May 1536. I chose a diary format so that the information was easily digestible and so that readers can dip into it and find out what happened on a specific date, or read in its entirety to see the tragic events unfold. I include full references and a bibliography (on the book website for the Kindle version) so that readers can also do their own research or check facts.
