New book - Tudor court
- There is a new book out called Jane Boleyn: The Infamous Lady Rochford by
Julia Fox. Those of you who are Tudor court mavens will know her as Queen
Anne Boleyn's sister-in-law, married to her brother George Boleyn.
I think this book will be of interest to SCAdians with early 16th-century
personae because of the information about her daily life, inventories of
possessions, and childhood as the daughter of a minor courtier. She was
lady in waiting to every queen from Anne to Katherine Howard, being finally
beheaded in 1542 for facilitating Katherine's extra-marital adventures.
The review I read in the London Review of Books doesn't speak about
illustrations, and the only version my local library has is the audio CD.
I see several copies available from amazon.com starting at $14 for a used
