Product Description

Product Description

On the morning of 19 May 1536, a French blade stilled the heart of an English queen. Her name was Anne Boleyn and her story has made an indelible mark on history. This book will take you through stately homes, castles, chapels and artefacts with a connection to Anne. Explore Hever Castle, Anne's childhood home where two breathtaking Books of Hours both signed and inscribed by Anne Boleyn herself are housed; visit Thornbury Castle where Henry VIII and Anne stayed during their 1535 royal progress and see the octagonal bedchamber where they slept; stand in the very room in Windsor Castle where Anne was made Marquis of Pembroke. Each location is covered by an accessible and informative narrative, which unearths the untold stories and documents the artefacts. Accompanied by an extensive range of images, including photographs, floor plans and sketches, this book brings the sixteenth century vividly to life - and takes you on your own personal and compelling journey in the footsteps of Anne Boleyn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tudor Treasure 25 Nov 2013
By Nimrod
Format:Hardcover
Take a historical tour of 16th Century England through the eyes and experiences of one of the best known individuals of the Tudor era. Each place that Anne Boleyn (the unfortunate 2nd wife of King Henry VIII), would have visited is included. I was astonished at how many places! The great thing about this book, though, is the chronological organisation of each entry. Rather than presenting a piecemeal coverage of those places that Anne Boleyn would have experienced, it organises them around her life story, so there is an ongoing narrative present through the book. Having said that, things are divided up into helpful sections, for instance part 1. Early Years, Part 2. The Courting Years, and so on. AB's time spent during her youth in France - and though much of this has, by necessity, to be speculative, is also covered.

Even though a good many of the buildings are no longer as they were in AB's time, or else have completely vanished, the authors do a great job at `reconstructing' in the mind of their readers an approximation of how they would have been using historic records. Others, such as The Tower or Hever Castle are very much on the tourist map, of course, and these popular venues are treated extensively. For each site, you get notes on background and history and how the place fits in with the facts that are known of AB's life. There are over 100 photos and illustrations, with references to documents the artefacts, nearby attractions and, most importantly, visitor information so you can plan your visit. The whole book is very well designed and set out neatly and generously on the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really well researched and informative 23 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an absorbing account of Anne Boleyn's travels in France and England during her lifetime. The book catalogues each place, gives a detailed history of what occurred there, and details about opening times etc. Uniquely, it also gives the authors' views about the sites mentioned which brings it even more to life. There are photos and maps to illustrate. Evidently a lot of research and work has gone into accuracy in this book, and it is hugely enjoyable - either to dip into or read cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must read' for all Anne Boleyn fans 21 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a fantastic book - so enjoyed reading it.
The research that was done for this book is amazing as well as the attention to detail.
Love the idea that buildings that no longer exist made it into the book - with the authors description of what was once there you truly get a feel of the original building. This is a complete tour guide for any Anne Boleyn fan. This is a 'must read'.
Congratulations Sarah & Natalie - wishing you both every success with this book.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely fantastic, it will really take you as far into the world of Anne Boleyn as you are ever going to get. Here you learn about every Palace, Castle, Stately home, Church, Abbey etc that Anne ever visited, and with as much information as possible. Many places do not survive and have been long forgotten, but this book will really bring them back to life. It is perfect not just for those fascinated by Anne Boleyn and Tudor history in general, but also for those who love architectural history as well. Personally i think it's a great shame that something like this has not been done for more historical figures as imagine how many other long lost buildings would get brought back to life. I personally cannot wait to go exploring all these fascinating places now, and to walk in the footsteps of Anne and the Tudor court.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly excellent 5 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a beautiful piece of work, thoroughly researched and easy to use. Having spent many years reading historical pieces and guides, it's refreshing to feel that you can relax into a book and simply enjoy it, as the book is solidly referenced and the authors are not afraid to say "We simply do not know" when appropriate. It is a very personal guide and the authors' love for their subject matter beams through every words and photograph but never threatens to overpower the work with fanaticism or obsession. Instead, there is a sense of "Because we love this woman, we will get this right" and what more could you wish for from a work of this nature?

Some of the places in this book I know like the back of my hand, others I know through reference books alone whilst yet others I had barely heard of. Safe to say, not only will I be making a few extra daytrips this Spring/ Summer, I also feel that this book has opened another little window into that world and that makes it very special indeed.
