Portrait of Anne Boleyn from Hever Castle

Posthumous portrait of Anne Boleyn housed at Hever Castle. This portrait is frequently (and incorrectly) stated to be Hans Holbein the Younger although it dates to a much later date. It is very likely that Anne did sit for Holbein during her time as queen although any portrait that was made has not survived. There are two Holbein drawings that have been argued to be of her, although there is no consensus amongst historians on whether either depicts Anne. This is a rather romantic image of…

Thomas Cranmer (2 July 1489 – 21 March 1556) leader of the English Reformation and Archbishop of Canterbury during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and, for a short time, Mary I. He helped build a favourable case for Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon which resulted in the separation of the English Church from union with the Holy See. Along with Thomas Cromwell, he supported the principle of Royal Supremacy, in which the king was considered sovereign over the Church within his…

Anne Boleyn

Ann Boleyn, Queen of England & Marquess of Pembroke - Okay, this may seem like an odd choice; but she was extremely bright & influential. She was instrumental to the English Reformation (and not just because Henry wanted to sleep with her); was a patroness of the arts & anyone (short of Hitler) that could be the instrument/object that shift the entire face of the world is worth a little bit of admiration... right?

History of the British fashion

Fashion is a huge subject. It was dependent on the area of the world lived in, the class or profession of the wearer, whether they were male or female, required formal or informal attire and the technologies and materials available for manufacturing the garments. And yet, in many ways imperial fashion was a slave to the fashions of 'high society' of cosmopolitan Britain. It was remarkable for how often it did not adapt to the environment or climate lived in. British subjects in particular…

Act of Succession/Oath of Supremacy eliminating Mary and elevating Elizabeth.

Henry was not able to divorce his wife or his whole country could have been excommunicated. He tried to use “Papal dispensation”, which means he tried to use his title to convince the Pope. King Henry was stupid and failed. His frustration forced him to write an Act of Supremacy over the Roman Catholic Church, in 1533. He made the Church of England and successfully divorced his wife, Catherine. He immediately remarried to Anne Boleyn for another go at a son. Ironically, he once again failed.

The reformation really got it's start when Martin Luther wrote his Ninety Five Theses. Luther listed many of the problems with the current Catholic church. This website lists these theses in English and in Latin.

History of the Puritans under Elizabeth I

The English Reformation, begun in the reign of Henry VIII of England, was initially influenced by a number of reforming movements on the continent: Erasmian, Lutheran, and Reformed, while the practice of the Church of England continued to display many similarities with Roman Catholicism. In the reign of Henry’s son, Edward VI of England, the English Reformation took on a distinctly Calvinist tone. Cambridge Professor William Fulke encouraged his students not to waer required vestments
