Anne Boleyn & Elizabeth I: The Mother and Daughter Who Changed History

Tracy Borman

Thursday 19 October 2023, 18:00 at The Auditorium


One of the most extraordinary mother and daughter stories of all time – Anne Boleyn, the most famous of Henry VIII’s wives and her daughter Elizabeth, the ‘Virgin Queen’.  Using evidence from original documents and artefacts, Tracy Borman tells the story of Anne Boleyn’s relationship with, and influence over her daughter Elizabeth, shedding new light on two of the most fascinating and influential women in history.  Historian Dr Tracy Borman is joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces.  Her books include The Private Lives of the Tudors and Crown & Sceptre.

‘(A) thought-provoking, impeccably researched, and moving account uncovering how Anne’s family, intellect, and tragedy shaped Elizabeth I’s extraordinary career.’  Gareth Russell
