Anne Boleyn by Alison Weir

The young woman who changed the course of history


Anne Boleyn.  The second of Henry’s Queens.  Her story.

Fresh from the palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love.

But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game.

Anne has a spirit worthy of a crown – and the crown is what she seeks.  At any price.

History tells us why she died.  This powerful novel shows her as she lived.

Peer & Press Reviews

Alison Weir has brought English history’s most famous ‘other woman’ compellingly to life.  The story of Anne Boleyn’s rise from accomplished court lady to Henry VIII’s second queen is vividly told and the terror of her final days will haunt the reader.  A must for all lovers of historical fiction.

Linda Porter, author of Royal Renegades

Prominent royal biographer and historical novelist Weir is well-placed to craft this detailed fictional portrait of Henry VIII’s second wife…  She explores Anne’s influences and motivations, creating a multifaceted portrait of an ambitious woman who reluctantly accedes to Henry’s courtship and later acts out of desperation to protect herself and her daughter, Elizabeth.  Even readers who know Anne’s story well should gain insights from this revealing novel.
