Anne Bolyn. Later copy of an original portrait, which was painted in about 1534. Several portraits of Anne are housed in the Tudor portrait collection at Hever Castle as are two of her Books of Hours which are signed and inscribed by her.

Anne Boleyn -It is not known when she caught the attention of the King, but Anne’s older sister, Mary, had been Henry’s mistress . Anne probably learned from Mary’s example. Anne denied Henry any sexual favors and refused to be his mistress. This only made the King pine for her more; he lavished her with jewelry, clothing, royal titles for her family, her own set of servants and palace apartments. He wrote her passionate love letters, in which 17 of them are preserved in the Vatican library.
