Mary Boleyn and Queen Elizabeth II

Posted By Claire on September 10, 2015

I’ve had a few people ask why I, as an owner of an Anne Boleyn website, have been involved in a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on the day she became Britain’s longest reigning monarch.

Well, there are three answers to the question:

1.  I’m British and I have the greatest respect for my royal family, so wanted to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s achievement.

2.  I know that many of my followers are interested in British history and Birtish royalty.

3.  Queen Elizabeth II is descended from Mary Boleyn, sister of Anne Boleyn.

I thought you might be interested in how Queen Elizabeth II is descended from Mary Boleyn, so here is the line of descent and I hope you find it interesting:

  • Mary Boleyn (d. 1543) m. William Carey
