    They didn’t need the speed of social media; the rumor mill was in full force and it was deadly. We will never really know the whole truth of this sad saga.

    There is a lot of evidence that the mob that tried to attack Anne never existed. The biggest being that Henry had no reaction on record. This supposedly happened during their courtship, and while he was attempting to secure a divorce through the Catholic Church. The fact that a punishment is not mentioned, and security was not increased for Anne both indicate that this story was not true. Even had Anne not been present peasants attacking the home of their lord would have been something that would be a well known event as rebellion was not tolerated and the handling and punishment of those involved is well recorded in every other instance since prior to Henry VIII’s reign. Antonia is not a contemporary of Henry’s and so I am curious about her source.
