Happy Monday everyone. As many of you may know, May 19th was the anniversary of Queen Anne Boleyn's death. She is one my favorite historical figures and I couldn't skip on showing a video or two in honor of the infamous woman. She was a woman far ahead of her times. She was smart, charming, ambitious, a dreamer, strong, and could play the political field. The only reason why she is infamous is because of the time period she was born in and she lost the game. Women were suppose to be meek and weak and she was neither one of those. Yes, she was human and did some bad things to people. She did break up a broken family, but she did it for her family and her own advances. Without this woman the light of England would never have been born. Her daughter was Queen Elizabeth I, who was another infamous woman of history. I always have felt some odd connection with Anne Boleyn. It is hard to explain.
I can't remember if I shared this or not, but this is heart-breaking video and song:
I'm really starting to like Mozart Opera Rock. I understand the majority of their songs which are on French:
Hope you enjoyed my selections for this week. RIP Anne.
