Anne Bo­leyn, 500 years of Lies is a in­ter­est­ing new anal­y­sis of one of history’s most mis­rep­re­sented women.

Anne Bo­leyn has been por­trayed as a dark fig­ure, a schem­ing se­duc­tress who be­witched Henry VIII into di­vorc­ing his queen and his church in an un­prece­dented dis­play of pas­sion.

In this ex­posé, Hayley Nolan ex­plores for the first time the full, un­cen­sored ev­i­dence of Anne Bo­leyn’s life and re­la­tion­ship with Henry VIII, re­veal­ing the shock­ing sup­pres­sion of a pow­er­ful woman.

So leave all no­tions of out­dated and ro­man­ti­cised folk­lore at the door and for­get what you think you know about one of the Tudors’ most no­to­ri­ous queens. She may have been si­lenced for cen­turies, but Nolan’s book en­sures Anne Bo­leyn’s voice is be­ing heard now.
