Anne Boleyn was the cause of three of the most important events in English history: the break with Rome, the development of the nation state, and the reign of her daughter Elizabeth I. This elegant biographical study not only traces her early life and education, her marriage to King Henry VIII, and her trial and execution accused of adultery and incest; it probes the mystery of how an apparently unremarkable young woman became the fulcrum of profound historical change.
