Hever Castle is perhaps best known as the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, but there is far more history there. Anne Boleyn was Queen of England from 1533 until her execution in May 1536. From her marriage to King Henry VIII of England, she had one surviving daughter, the future Queen Elizabeth I.

It is unclear where Anne was born exactly, but she certainly spent part of her childhood at Hever Castle. The Boleyns of Hever Castle takes us back to the rise of the Boleyns and how the castle evolved over the years. The book is wonderfully illustrated with maps and other illustrations. The writing is excellent and really takes you in. I visited Hever Castle many years ago and was immediately taken back there in my mind.

The Boleyns of Hever Castle by Owen Emmerson and Claire Ridgway is available now in the UK and the US.
