In the Shadow of the Throne: the rise and fall of the Boleyn men

Anne Boleyn dominates the Tudor period, and her story has been re told and re imagined over the centuries. Yet two of the most important and influential men of her life- her father Thomas and brother George- have been vilified, marginalised, and forgotten. This talk aims to re-evaluate the Boleyn men, beyond the traditional stereotypes that have been unfairly assigned to them, and restore them to their rightful place in Tudor history.
