    I had read that Anne implicated possible innocent men as being her lovers and they too were executed- I’m no scholar on the Tudor dynasties by any means, but from what I have read, I think it rested with Henry, and if the records are correct, Anne herself. Who, as Queen, would take lovers, knowing that such actions would be considered high treason?

    • Tudors Dynasty

      She did not take lovers. The dates that they said she spent with those men have since been proven false. She was in different places at those times. It was all a setup to take her down because Henry tired of her and desperately wanted a male heir.

  2. Another factor I’ve heard is that Henry may have given up on Anne’s chances of giving him a son. By Tudor standards, she wasn’t a young woman anymore. He may have feared a repeat of Catherine of Aragon.

    Hi
    There might have been a fear that she couldn’t bear a son so Cromwell and others plotted her downfall she was mostly innocent I guess we will never know the real reason, it could have been the death off Katherine of Aragon and King Henrys son Henry of Richmond was dying and jane Seymour offered a sympathetic ear to King Henry he could be manipulated maybe it was really Jane

    she didn’t take lovers she couldn’t without people knowing
    one of her ladies in waiting I cant remember her name was accused by her brother of naughty behaviour she cheekily replied I’m not as bad as the queen someone told the king what was said and maybe Cromwell used it to bring her down
    maybe the king was under stress because his ex wife died his new wife lost a son and blamed him his bastard son was dying of tb or maybe cystic fibrosis it was easier to kill her off and make a new start

      The Lady you are thinking about is Elizabeth Browne, Countess of Worcester, whose brother, Sir Anthony Browne questioned her about the father of the baby she was having. Lady Worcester replied that if he thought she was bad he should see what went on in the Queen’s apartments. Sir Anthony went to Cromwell who went to the King. Cromwell was ordered to investigate. This is according to Lancelot de Carles, a Frenchman writing a biography of Anne Boleyn in poem form in 1536. It was just tittle tattle. However, the report on the trial by Justice Spelman mentioned Lady Worcester and two others, not Jane Parker, who was the wife of George Boleyn. She had nothing to do with the fall of Anne Boleyn. The dates were invented by Cromwell and the entire case was a set up.

    Jane Boleyn had nothing to do with the fall of Anne Boleyn, there is no evidence and the Tudors was fictitious. It was full of inaccuracies. See my response above.

    I recommend the biography of Jane Boleyn by Julia Fox.
