Mary Boleyn

Alison Weir

Publisher:Vintage

Mary Boleyn is remembered by posterity as a ÔÇÿgreat and infamous whoreÔÇÖ.She was the mistress of two kings, Francois I of France and Henry VIII of England, and sister to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIIIÔÇÖs second wife. She may secretly have borne Henry a child and it was because of his adultery with Mary that his marriage to Anne was annulled.It is not hard to see how this tangled web of relationships has given rise to rumours and misconceptions that have been embroidered over the centuries.n this, the first full-scale biography of Mary Boleyn, Alison Weir explodes much of the mythology that surrounds her subject and uncovers the facts about one of the most misunderstood figures of the Tudor age.Her extensive, forensic research has facilitated a new and detailed portrayal, in which she recounts that, contrary to popular belief, Mary was entirely undeserving of her posthumous notoriety as a great whore or the ÔÇÿhackneyÔÇÖ whom the King of France famously boasted of riding.Weir also presents compelling new evidence that almost conclusively determines the paternity of MaryÔÇÖs two oldest children.In this astonishing and riveting book, Alison Weir shows that MaryÔÇÖs story had a happy ending and that she was by far the luckiest of the Boleyns.
