Anne Boleyn, Part 2: Gloating Queen
Anne reveled in her gambit’s success
As victor in the royal game of chess
But as with Catherine of Aragon,
A Tudor queen’s a mere pawn
That the next minor piece can dispossess.
There was much royal fuckery afoot. King Henry did Anne’s sister, Mary, and possibly her mother, Elizabeth Howard, too. He also banged Anne’s other lady-in-waiting, Madge Shelton, while he was doing Jane Seymour, who, incidentally, was Anne’s second cousin. It’s not incest, if it all happens in someone else’s family!
