Julia Fox Þ 8 summary read & download ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Þ Julia Fox summary Jane Boleyn The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford 108 In a life of extraordinary drama Jane Boleyn was catapulted from relative obscurity to the inner circle of King Henry VIII As powerful men and women around her became victims of Henry’s ruthless and absolute power including her own husband and sister in law ueen Anne Boleyn Jane’s allegiance to the volatile monarchy was sustained and rewarded But the price for her loyalty would eventually be her undoing and the ruination of her name For centuries little beyond rumor and scandal has been associated with “the infamous Lady Rochford” But now historian Julia Fox sets the record straight and restores dignity to this much maligned figure whose life and reputation were taken from herBorn to aristocratic parents in the English countryside young Jane Parker found a suitable match in George Boleyn brother to Anne the woman who would eventually. To relate the story of Jane Boleyn Anne Boleyn s sister in law Fox did a great deal of research Unfortunately there was apparently little to unearth In over 300 pages Jane is uoted exactly twice in a letter to Cromwell and a few sentences from her testimony regarding Katherine Howard That s it We don t know when she was born where she was raised how she was educated or even what she looked like Even her last words from the scaffold she was executed for her part in Katherine Howard s treachery were not recordedJane may or may not have been elegant poised and animated as Fox insists she was But the fact is we have no way of knowing All but a few hours of her life are a complete mystery to us The best Fox can do is guess and guess she does throughout the entire book And for a history that encompasses the love affairs and executions of two fascinating ueens particularly one riddled with conjecture the book is surprisingly dry I used it as a sleep aid

First offjust found out I can do this through facebookv coolOkay now to the bookIt s basically hmm this what I think happened and Jane was a 16th century woman so she would and then she got her head chopped offWomen in the 16th century unless they were women in extraordinary circumstances were simply not well documented And Jane just wasn t And we just don t know But to say in the absence of not knowing that we should assume she was a poor maligned victim of circumstanceis a bit much The author extrapolated a LOTWhat we do know is that she was married to George Boleyn and testified willingly or not against her husband and sister in law and was enough in favor that she was brought back to be a lady in waiting to Jane Seymour We also know that she facilitated a ueen cheating on the king Willingly or not that s just a dumb dumb dumb moveAnd I could get behind dumb and caught up in the moment SureI ll buy that I won t buyshe was innocent victim of circumstance and by the time she realized culpepper and catherine were doing the nasty her only choice was to help them arrange places for said nastiness Honestly most of this book was about Anne Boleyn with the Jane would have Jane could have Jane might have thought to tie the facts to the title pageand they were tied looselyFine to read I skimmed a lot but at the end I couldn t pick Jane out of a crowd The author stated she wanted to rehabilitate public opinion of Jane Boleyn A fine goal but you can t just have gut instinct and hopeful interpretation of the facts to do so Jane might have been a innocent bystander or she might have been an awful human being After reading this book I couldn t tell you which she was any than I could have before reading itIf you have some free time surebut if you re looking for insight and historical researchlook elsewhere
