The tragic story of Anne Boleyn has been retold over the centuries, yet two key figures in Anneâ€™s lifeâ€”her father Thomas and brother Georgeâ€” are often relegated to the margins of Henry VIIIâ€™s turbulent reign. Well before Anneâ€™s coronation in 1533, Thomas was regarded as one of Henryâ€™s most skilled and experienced ambassadors, and George was a talented young courtier on the rise. But Anne's downfall was to have a devastating effect on her family â€“ ultimately costing her and her brother their lives. A family whose success and prestige had been shaped over generations was destroyed in a violent and brutal episode as the king sought a new wife and a male heir. In this first biography devoted to the Boleyn men, Lauren Mackay takes us beyond the stereotypes of Thomas and George to present a story that has almost been lost to history. This book follows the Boleyn men as they negotiated their way through the ruthless game of politics among the wolves of the court, and establishes their place in Tudor history.
