Did the French betray Anne Boleyn?

Historian Interview May 2024 | Dr Estelle Paranque

This is Estelle’s second appearance on the British History channel, her first being in 2022 when we talked about Elizabeth I and Catherine de Medici, the focus of her brilliant book ‘Blood, Fire & Gold.’ Estelle is back to discuss the topic of her latest book, soon to be released, ‘Thorns, Lust & Glory’ which looks at Anne Boleyn’s time at, and links to, the French court, giving us a fresh perspective and European context to the marriage which split Christendom!
