May 3, 1536 – Thomas Cranmer Defends Anne Boleyn

Great post, I recommend this blog. Today is the day that in 1536, Thomas Cranmer defended Anne Boleyn. As many of you will know. Thomas Cranmer was Anne Boleyn’s chaplain so the two knew each other (somewhat). And he believed she was an honest reformer and while he knew he couldn’t disobey the King, he risked his own life trying to defend her. Granted, it can be argued it was not enough, but it was nonetheless a mammoth attempt by a man who had much to loose and for a woman the King wanted gone.
