The Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula, final resting place of Anne Boleyn. In one of the many clues that Anne’s guilt was a forgone conclusion and she would not get a fair trial, Henry VIII had called for Jean Rombaud, the expert “Headsman of Calais”, before her trial had even begun.
Anne Boleyn was born in 1501 and spent her childhood at Hever Castle, which had belonged to her family since 1462. This room is traditionally thought to have been her bedroom. The half-domed ceiling is an original fifteenth-century feature designed to give a feeling of greater space and light.
