> Anne Boleyn : Fatal Attractions by George Bernard.

Review : Anne Boleyn (pronounced ‘Bullen”), the second wife of king Henry VIII, was beheaded in 1536 for having had several lovers. She protested her innocence to the last.

Historians have generally taken the line that she was the blameless victim of king Henry’s sexual voracity, and also of her politico-religious enemies.
George Bernard explores the possibility that, desperate to give Henry a male heir, Anne was driven to take lovers because Henry himself was intermittently impotent – when he was not persuing some new mistress.
