Today wouldn’t be today without mentioning Anne Boleyn. Today marks the 474th anniversary of Anne Boleyn’s execution by beheading. As y’all know, I am a huge Anne Boleyn fan. I’m still trying to figure out a reason to wear the famous “B” necklace, and I think I may have finally found it! Move over Betty!
I have always thought Anne Boleyn was a women way ahead of her time. She had a fine brain, and no, I don’t believe she had six fingers. I mean think about it. Would Henry VIII have even looked twice at her once he noticed an extra finger on her hands? If you know anything about Henry, had he seen six digits, I think you would agree he would have looked the other way so fast he would have given himself whiplash.
I love Anne not just for her feisty nature or daring feats of psychological maneuvering or political coups in a man’s world — and I could go on. I also loved her for her provocative nature, her love of fashion and trendsetting, her single minded determination, her ability to have drama and intrigue follow her wherever she went and make Tudor history scandalous. Let’s face it, Anne B. knew how to put the “S” in scandalous! I could so see her winning Survivor or having her own reality show. Now that would be scandalous indeed!
No wonder Elizabeth I was such a glorious Queen. She took the best of both sets of genes and rocked it.
If you love Anne Boleyn as much as I do, here is an awesome site. R.I.P. Anne Boleyn and thanks for the memories!
