Anne Boleyn’s Book of Hours–Part One

“Kings Ms. 9”. I had sent at least nine emails to a wonderfully helpful woman at the manuscripts services department of the British Library and now I had what I needed to request a book that I never thought I would be able to hold. Over the previous weeks I had had to fill out several pages of information to apply for a special pass that would grant me access to the manuscript reading room at the St Pancras location. I still did not think that I was going to be given access to the book–it was rare and valuable and I am not a famous historian, just a history student with a dream. I have always believed that rather than playing him for power, Anne Boleyn was in love with Henry and inside of this book was proof.
