Why did Henry VIII have two wives executed? We can learn a lot about the circumstances which led to the executions of Anne Boleyn and, 6 years later, her cousin Catherine Howard, by comparing and contrasting the two. Gareth Russell explores the events surrounding the downfall of each of the ill-fated Queens of Henry VIII in this new perspective on a familiar story and reveals a surprising fact...that Henry wrote a play about Anne Boleyn's "sexual misdemeanors" before her trial! #AnneBoleyn #HenryVIII #CatherineHoward You can also watch this episode on YouTube.
