A contemporary image of Anne Boleyn

This week's Claire Chats video has been inspired by a debate that's been happening online over an image from The Black Book of the Garter which Roland Hui believes to be of Anne Boleyn.

Note: My frustration and critical comments are aimed entirely at the anonymous author's way of disputing Roland's claims. Beth von Staats and are not responsible for that as it was published on the website in good faith and QAB is a collaborative site. It is the author who has been dishonest, misleading and unprofessional.
