Early Life of Anne Boleyn Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Early Life of Anne Boleyn: A Critical Essay The appearance, within so short a time of one another, of two works of such marked importance as Mr. Brewer's Reign of Henry VIII., and Mr. Friedmann's Anne Boleyn -both of them the fruit of long study and of the most elaborate original research -has invested with a new and striking interest the story of one whose sad career has always possessed a romantic charm, and whose rise and fall, as we are now learning, was closely connected with great events at a crisis of our national history. Mr. Gairdner, who, since the appearance of the above works, has briefly written her life for the Dictionary of National Biography, reminds us that "some points in her early history are still beset with controversies." On these I shall here endeavour to throw some fresh light. I have been led more especially to select this subject, because it will be found, I think, to suggest to those of us engaged in the study of history a useful and needed lesson. We shall, on the one hand, be forced to confess that, boast as we may of the achievements of our new scientific school, we are still, as I have urged, behind the Germans, so far, at least, as accuracy is concerned.

The Portrayal of Anne Boleyn in "The Tudors" AV Akademikerverlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When reinventing history within the medium of film or television, these re-tellings of the past are always strongly influenced by our contemporary way of living, our contemporary society, our contemporary understanding of morals. Thus, the historical television series "The Tudors" employs a rather modern way of reimagining Henry VIII's (Jonathan Ryhs Meyers) reign and life. It is particularly Henry Tudor's second wife Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer) who is represented in extremely contemporary terms. The means of recreating the historical figure of Anne Boleyn in "The Tudors" in a context of contemporariness are manifold: her physical appearance in the sense of casting Anne Boleyn, her representation of female behaviour and the mediality of her varoius costumes. In all that Dormer's portrayal of Henry VIII's legendary wife seeks a rather modern approach, which has the effect that she seems to have a great appeal to modern-day audiences, which is certainly always one of the main objectives of historical fiction.

Anne of Cleves Amberley Publishing Local

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The first major biography of Henry VIII least favourite wife - but the one who outlived them all. 'I like her not!' was the verdict of Henry VIII on meeting his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, for the first time. Anne could have said something similar on meeting Henry and, having been promised the most handsome prince in Europe, she was destined to be disappointed in the elderly and corpulent king. Henry also felt that Anne was not as she had been described, complaining that he had been sent a Flander's mare. Forced to proceed with their wedding for diplomatic reasons, Henry and Anne tried to make the best of the situation, but attempts to consummate the match were farcical. Henry could not bring himself to touch his new bride and Anne, entirely ignorant of such matters, did not even notice that there was a problem. After only seven months of marriage Henry was so desperate to rid himself of Anne that he declared himself impotent in order to secure a divorce. Anne was also eager to end her marriage and, with her clever handling of Henry obtained one of the biggest divorce settlements in English history. Following her divorce, Anne made good use of her many properties, including Richmond Palace, Hever Castle and the house at Lewes now known as 'Anne of Cleves' House'. Anne of Cleves is often portrayed as a stupid and comical figure. The real Anne was both intelligent and practical, ensuring that, whilst she was queen for the shortest period, she was the last of all Henry VIII's wives to survive. Henry's chief minister, Thomas Cromwell lost his head for his role in the Cleves marriage, but Anne's shrewdness ensured she kept hers. Even after Henry's death, Anne managed to work to her own advancement, attempting to annul her divorce in order to ensure her financial security as a dowager queen. Anne of Cleves led a dramatic and often dangerous life but, for all this, of Henry VIII's six wives, she is truly the wife that survived.

Sisters Who Would be Queen Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The dramatic untold story of the Grey sisters, heirs to the Tudor throne. Lady Jane Grey is an iconic figure in English history. Misremembered as the 'Nine Days Queen', she has been mythologized as a child-woman destroyed on the altar of political expediency. Behind the legend, however, was an opinionated and often rebellious adolescent who died a passionate leader, not merely a victim. Growing up in Jane's shadow, her sisters Katherine and Mary would have to tread carefully to survive. The dramatic lives of the younger Grey sisters remain little known, but under English law they were the heirs - and rivals - to the Tudor monarchs Mary and Elizabeth I. The beautiful Katherine ignored Jane's dying request that she remain faithful to her beliefs, changing her religion to retain Queen Mary's favour only to then risk life and freedom in a secret marriage that threatened Queen Elizabeth's throne. While Elizabeth's closest adviser fought to save Katherine, her younger sister Mary remained at court as the queen's Maid of Honour. Too plain to be considered significant, it seemed that Lady Mary Grey, at least, would escape the burden of her royal blood. But then she too fell in love, and incurred the queen's fury. Exploding the many myths of Lady Jane's life and casting fresh light onto Elizabeth's reign, acclaimed historian Leanda de Lisle brings the tumultuous world of the Grey sisters to life, at a time when a royal marriage could gain you a kingdom or cost you everything.

In this surprising new life of Victoria, Christopher Hibbert, master of the telling anecdote and peerless biographer of England's great leaders, paints a fresh and intimate portrait of the woman who shaped a century. His Victoria is not only the formidable, demanding, capricious queen of popular imagination--she is also often shy, diffident, and vulnerable, prone to giggling fits and crying jags. Often censorious when confronted with her mother's moral lapses, she herself could be passionately sensual, emotional, and deeply sentimental. Ascending to the throne at age eighteen, Victoria ruled for sixty-four years--an astounding length for any world leader. During her reign, she dealt with conflicts ranging from royal quarrels to war in Crimea and rebellion in India. She saw monarchs fall, empires crumble, new continents explored, and England grow into a dominant global and industrial power. This personal history is a compelling look at the complex woman whom, until now, we only thought we knew.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Elizabeth I came to the throne at a time of insecurity and unrest. Rivals threatened her reign; England was a Protestant island, isolated in a sea of Catholic countries. Spain plotted an invasion, but Elizabeth's Secretary, Francis Walsingham, was prepared to do whatever it took to protect her. He ran a network of agents in England and Europe who provided him with information about invasions or assassination plots. He recruited likely young men and 'turned' others. He encouraged Elizabeth to make war against the Catholic Irish rebels, with extreme brutality and oversaw the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. "The Queen's Agent" is a story of secret agents, cryptic codes and ingenious plots, set in a turbulent period of England's history. It is also the story of a man devoted to his queen, sacrificing his every waking hour to save the threatened English state.

Excerpt from Queen and Cardinal: A Memoir of Anne of Austria and of Her Relations With Cardinal Mazarin N the following account of the life of Anne of Austria I wish at once to disclaim any idea of posing as a writer of history. The period embraced by the memoirs of this remarkable woman - one of the most important queens-regent who were ever called upon to act the part of a sovereign - is a very attractive one. The alliance of Bourbon and Hapsburg initiates a new era, in which dynastic considerations are all important, but the larger facts of the histories of France and Europe in the seventeenth century have been treated by many able historians, and do not enter into the scope or intention of these pages.
