Hever Castle what an odd choice seeing as it once belonged to the Boleyns

Yesterday was the anniversary of Mary's execution in 1587

Thank you eya...I have seen that photo many times..I assumed it was a famous and well known painting.

I wonder why they are calling it "rare"?

And yes An Ard Ri. ...Hever was the ancestral seat of the Boleyns....the maternal family of Mary's arch-rival and nemesis Elizabeth I.

Odd location to display Mary's portrait.

Hever was As I recall a royal property because it went to the King when the Boleyns died out... and was lived in by Anne of Cleves

Sir Geoffrey Boleyn bought the castle in 1462,it passed to his son Sir William Boleyn and to his son Thomas Boleyn, 1st Earl of Wiltshire.Lady Margaret Butler ,the paternal grandmother of Anne Boleyn was the last of the family to live there soon after her death it was given to Anne of Cleves.

1539, the same year as her son Thomas.

The family had three homes. Hever castle, Rochford Hall and Blickling Hall. While Hever was claimed by the king after Margaret died, much of the family estate remained with the remaining Boleyn, Mary. Mary and her husband lived at Rochford Hall until her death in 1543. It was sold in 1550 to Lord Rich.

Didn’t one of Mary Boleyn’s great granddaughters (one of Lettice Knolly’s daughters) marry a Lord Rich?

Yes, hr daughter Penelope was first married to Robert Rich, 3rd Baron Rich (later 1st Earl of Warwick). He divorced her in 1605. She had years earlier, around 1595, left him for Charles Blunt, Baron Mountjoy and had several children with him as well. Nothing was done at the time as her brother, Essex, was QEI's favorite.


She admitted to adultey in her divorce. She and Mountjoy were forbidden from marrying and legitmizinf their children. They married privately and were banished from court by James I. Both died a few years later.

If a match with a foreign prince was rejected altogether, then the obvious matrimonial possibility before Queen Mary's guardian was to wed her to the son of one of Scotland's nobles. James, 2nd Earl of Arran thought that his son would make her the best bridegroom.

Unfortunately, Arran was totally insane. Literally.

And totally unscrupulous with his flip flopping between his Pro French Catholic and Scottish Protestant Lord allegiances.

To be a fly on the wall during an Earl of Arran & Marie de Guise confrontation.
