But, Anne claimed she did not sleep with her brother, but he was later executed as well as her. (on the grounds of cheating)
My question is for you is do you think she slept her brother? That was common back then to keep royal blood, but it is hard for me to believe that Anne did so, especially being the Queen. Please sure your opinion!
Hi KingMaxwellVIII, welcome to the forum. May I ask why you say it was true that Anne Boleyn cheated on the King? I'm not arguing the point because obviously no one alive knows, but who do you think was her lover?
I don't think Anne Boleyn slept with her brother. The evidence against them was pretty scarce. I think the Elizabeth Browne, the Countess of Worcester, made the initial allegation based on the fact that George and Boleyn spent a long time alone. I think Cromwell and Henry accused Anne of incest in order to ensure people completely turned against her. Apparently George's case wasn't helped when he read a letter alleging the king was impotent during the trial. There was probably no turning back for him at that point.
