477 years ago today Henry VIII married Anne Boleyn. The marriage that rocked the world and changed the fate of England. England would never be the same after the pair married. Henry moved mountains to be with Anne including separating from Rome and the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
There is not much out there on Anne as far as art work goes since Henry had everything of her destroyed after her execution but I did happen to find a letter from Henry to Anne. Can you make out any of it? The only part I could make out is towards the bottom right "gentyile home", scary right, him offering a gentle home?
