Among The Wolves of Court: the Untold Story of Thomas and George Boleyn

Among The Wolves of Court: the Untold Story of Thomas and George Boleyn
 
  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The story of Anne Boleyn has been retold over the centuries, and her father, Thomas, is often portrayed as a grasping courtier who sacrificed his daughters to the royal bedchamber...but there is more to the story. For over three decades Thomas served as one of the Tudor period’s most highly skilled ambassadors, respected throughout the courts of Europe. A man of intellect and spirituality, he was also a patron of some of the greatest minds of the age, including renowned scholar Desiderius Erasmus. Lauren Mackay explores Thomas’ life and career, moving beyond the myths and stereotypes to establish his place in Tudor history. 
 
Lauren Mackay is an historian whose focus of study goes beyond familiar historical figures and events to lesser known individuals, as well as beliefs, customs, and diplomacy of the 16th Century. Her latest book, Among The Wolves of Court: the Untold Story of Thomas and George Boleyn, is based on her extensive PhD research, and introduces Anne Boleyn’s father and brother, often underplayed figures at Henry’s court, lifting the lid on their rise as highly skilled ambassadors and courtiers who negotiated their way through the complex and ruthless game of politics. 

Cost: £4
