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
