Anne Boleyn & Elizabeth I: the mother and daughter who changed history.

Thursday 27th July 2023 7pm, Tracy Borman will be discussing her latest book here in Lincoln Museum's auditorium.

Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I. Two of the most famous women in British history. Their stories are as familiar as they are compelling. Henry VIII’s obsessive love for Anne turning to bitter disappointment when she failed to give him a son, her bloody death on the scaffold barely three years after being crowned queen. Her daughter Elizabeth’s turbulent path to the throne, her long and glorious reign – a ‘Golden Age’ for England, with overseas adventurers, Shakespeare and Spenser, royal favourites, the vanquishing of the Armada, all presided over by the self-styled Virgin Queen. 

And yet, Anne and Elizabeth’s stories have never been told together. Piecing together evidence from original documents and artefacts uncovered while researching her new book, historian and broadcaster Tracy Borman reveals Anne Boleyn's relationship with, and influence over her daughter Elizabeth. In so doing, she sheds new light on an extraordinary mother and daughter who changed the course of British history forever.
