Anne Boleyn: A Life in Pictures & Sound

And so I present to you the culmination of my work over this past week: a special Glogster site (a sophisticated online poster of sorts) dedicated to that enigmatic figure of Tudor history, Anne Boleyn. This is a rather brief but stylish overview of Anne, highlighting the major points of her life through pictures. Don't forget to look towards the bottom of the page, where I have featured a YouTube video on her downfall and execution (created with love by yours truly), as well as some outside links to different modern interpretations of Anne. Be sure to click on the link "Full Size" to see everything.

Honestly, who doesn't love (or love to hate) Anne Boleyn? She's arguably the one who made Henry VIII the person he is known as today, the one who started it all! To quote Thomas Cromwell from Howard Brenton's play Anne Boleyn (playing at The Globe right now), "We were all in love with her."

Expect some more soon on the (unfortunate) end to my trip.

  2. I have never heard of Glogster before but this is really cool Jackie! I officially understand now though that you are more obsessed with the Tudors than I ever thought possible.

  3. Lol, it seems like everywhere I went on this trip mentioned the Tudors and Henry VIII in some way, so if anything I am now more obsessed than I ever was before :)
