In a life of extraordinary drama, Jane Boleyn was catapulted
from relative obscurity to the inner circle of King Henry VIII. As powerful men
and women around her became victims of Henry’s ruthless and absolute power,
including her own husband and sister-in-law, Queen Anne Boleyn, Jane’s
allegiance to the volatile monarchy was sustained and rewarded. But the price
for her loyalty would eventually be her undoing and the ruination of her name.
For centuries, little beyond rumor and scandal has been associated with “the
infamous Lady Rochford.” But now historian Julia Fox sets the record straight
and restores dignity to this much-maligned figure whose life and reputation
were taken from her.
Drawing upon her own deep knowledge and years of original
research, Julia Fox brings us into the inner sanctum of court life, laced with
intrigue and encumbered by disgrace. Through the eyes and ears of Jane Boleyn,
we witness the myriad players of the stormy Tudor period. Jane emerges as a
courageous spirit, a modern woman forced by circumstances to fend for herself
in a privileged but vicious world. Download and start listening now!
