Congratulations to my fellow MadeGlobal author Natalia Richards on the release of a revised version of her Anne Boleyn novel The Falcon’s Rise.
What I love about The Falcon’s Rise is that it focuses on Anne Boleyn’s early life – her time at Hever Castle and her move to Mechelen, rather than being about Anne’s relationship with King Henry VIII and her downfall. A refreshing read! It’s also the first of a two-part series, and I’ve had a sneaky look at the second book and it’s just as good!
Here is the blurb for The Falcon’s Rise:
The day before her execution, Anne Boleyn’s mind wanders back to the journey that changed her life…
Born into the Boleyn family in rural Norfolk, obscurity looms, but when Anne’s father, Thomas, moves the family to Hever Castle, in Kent, to further his own interests, the family’s fortunes take a turn for the better. Thomas secures a place for Anne’s sister, Mary, at the prestigious court of Margaret of Austria, but fate has other plans, and Anne ends up taking her place.
At thirteen, Anne yearns for adventure. However, unused to curbing her outspoken tongue and youthful curiosity, she discovers that life at Margaret’s court is not quite how she’d imagined. Experiencing love, loss, jealousy and fear, she soon realises that her future happiness lies in her own hands – and that she must shape her own destiny…
The Falcon’s Rise is the first part of a two-part series, beginning the journey with the young Anne Boleyn growing into the woman who captured the heart of a king.

On this day in Tudor history, 1st September 1532, in a special ceremony at Windsor Castle, King Henry VIII elevated his sweetheart Anne Boleyn to the peerage by making her Marquess of Pembroke. This was a hugely significant act because Henry VIII made Anne a marquess in her own right, granted the title to her […]

On this day in Tudor history, 26th August 1533, Queen Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII, prepared for the birth of her first child by “taking her chamber” at Greenwich Palace. This child was of course the future Queen Elizabeth I. “Taking her chamber” was common practice in Tudor England, and in today’s […]
You might have been wondering where I am. Well, I’m still here, but we’re having technical issues with the site after a server upgrade. We’re working hard to resume normal service though. Last week, I did another of my “Questions about Anne Boleyn” videos. It’s a subject I’ve handled before, but it’s one I keep […]
On this day in history, 25th July 1535, the Feast of St James, Eustace Chapuys, the imperial ambassador, wrote to Nicolas Perrenot de Granvelle, one of Emperor Charles V’s advisors, and included a post-script regarding Anne Boleyn and her daughter, Elizabeth, being verbally attacked by Will Somer (Summer), King Henry VIII’s fool. Chapuys recorded: “P.S.-He […]
