15 May 1536 – The trials of Queen Anne Boleyn and George Boleyn, Lord Rochford – The Fall of Anne Boleyn
Posted By Claire on May 15, 2019
On this day in 1536, Queen Anne Boleyn and her brother, George Boleyn, Lord Rochford, were tried by a jury of their peers presided over by their own uncle, the Duke of Norfolk.
Did they have any hope of justice?
What do the contemporary sources tell us?
And what happened when George disobeyed an order?
I explain exactly what happened in today’s video.
I’m doing these “Fall of Anne Boleyn” videos daily until 19th May and I started on 24th April. You can catch up with them on the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society Youtube Channel.
