Lucrezia: Tell me about my father.
Vannozza: I have done so a thousand times.
Lucrezia: Was he handsome? Was he brave?
Vannozza: Oh, yes.
Lucrezia: Did you love him so much that you thought you would die without him?
Vannozza: You read too much romance, Lucrezia. I’m sad to say, but soon you will learn there is very little real romance in the world.
I want to be the queen: Anne spoke her mind and was quick tempered. Henry could enjoy her vivacity, their political debates but her manners, too outspoken, weren’t attractive as a queen, and even unacceptable. Anne was very jealous, she didn’t want Henry to have mistresses. The whole court could hear their arguments. Henry was a man of his time, he needed a meek wife. He disliked the fact she talked so openly. Why she couldn’t turn her eyes, like Catherine?But Anne wasn’t Catherine. She wanted to be the equal of Henry because she was ambitious, but also because she was ahead of her time.
