Mary Boleyn was the mistress of two kings, Francois I of France and Henry VIII of England, and sister to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife. In this astonishing and riveting biography, Alison Weir's extensive research gives a new and detailed portrayal, in which she recounts that, contrary to popular belief, Mary was entirely undeserving of her posthumous notoriety as a great whore.

    " Raised more questions than it answered. I was left quite sure of the author's opinions, but far less confident in how she arrived at them. For example, I read almost an entire chapter about who was older: Mary or Anne. And I'm still not sure of the facts. I think this book would have been a Good Read indeed had it contained any information on Mary's personality, her thoughts and her feelings. This book was more into data and most of that remains unproven- still. "

    " I felt like Weir did a good job of trying to construct the most accurate picture of Mary by going back to contemporary sources and starting there. The problem, as she freely admits, is that there is not a lot of actual material on Mary's life, and only two of her letters survive. Based on the lack of actual information, Weir did a good job looking at the society and conditions of the time and try and make some inferences to fill in the blanks and dispel widely-accepted inaccuracies where she could. However, sometimes the assumptions she made felt too tenuous and Weir's pro-Mary bias came through very clearly in the writing. An interesting read purely for the fact since not many historical works solely focusing on Mary exist, but not completely satisfying for the above listed reasons. "

    " A very thorough look at Mary Boleyn, considering how very little is actually known of her. Educational? Yes. Page turner? No. Weir's bio of Elizabeth was far more interesting. "

    " Kinda a sad history. Alison Weir presents a lot of facts, but thats just how it reads. A long list of facts and quotes strung along. Contrived sentences to use particularly useless quotes. The book would do better as an appendix to a book about Anne. Most of the information is about Anne anyway. "
