By Philippa Gregory

Chapter 12

Autumn 1525

  • In this short chapter, the Boleyn family has another meeting.
  • The Boleyns believe that if Mary has a son, Henry will find a way to ditch the queen and hitch Mary. From wedded and bedded to ditched and hitched.
  • Mary finally speaks up. "I can't betray her. I cannot take her place" (12.13).
  • Mary's uncle, who would wear a "Cool story, babe. Now go make me a sandwich" hoodie┬áif they had them back then, tells her to sit down and shut up, because men are still in charge. She has no say in her life.
