Mary Boleyn : the mistress of kings 
Alison Weir, noted Tudor historian, is on a mission.  Weir wants to set the record straight on what is known and what is not known concerning Mary Boleyn, sister of Anne Boleyn and sister-in-law of Henry VIII. Using an impressive array of primary sources and extensive secondary research,   Weir  attempts to stop  the myths and correct  many unsubstantiated claims that keep popping up in recent historical fiction (The Other Boleyn Girl) and the HBO series, the Tudors.  While Weir attempts to fill in unknown gaps in Mary’s life, she makes it very clear that this is speculation on her part backed up by her reading of historical documents.  If you are a fan of Weir’s previous biographies, you will not be disappointed.
