The’splendour’ of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London for her coronation before her ‘darkest days’ in jail.

According to unearthed claims from a book, ANNE BOLEYN lived in “splendour” at the Tower of London for her coronation before her “darkest days” there ahead of her execution.

A new season of a documentary series on Channel 5 has delved into the mysterious history of the Tower of London.

The third episode of ‘Inside the Tower of London’ will be broadcast tonight.

The series takes viewers behind the walls of the 11th-century citadel on the River Thames, where they meet the Queen’s Yeomen Warders, or Beefeaters, who help manage and protect the Tower.

This season features tributes to the late Prince Philip, who passed away earlier this year, as well as the birth of four new raven chicks at the Tower.

Rob Fuller, the new Yeoman Gaoler, the person historically in charge of prisoners at the Tower, gets to wield a ceremonial axe in the latest episode.

Rob is put to the test when he preside over the 62-gun salute in June of this year to commemorate the Queen’s coronation in 1953, with the Chief Yeoman Warder on leave.

The Tower has served as a fortress, a prison, and a palace over the course of its 1,000-year existence.

Anne Boleyn is one of the Tower’s most well-known residents, having stayed there both before and after her coronation, as well as as a prisoner before her execution.

Authors Sarah Morris and Natalie Grueninger described the contrasting moments of England’s former Queen at the Tower in their 2013 book, ‘In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn.’

They wrote that Anne “experienced both the pinnacle of her triumph” and “the darkest days of her cataclysmic downfall” “within the shadows of its walls.”

Prior to her Coronation in 1533, Anne “lodged at the Tower with Henry in sumptuous splendour,” according to the duo.

They did add, however, that she saw “the darkest days of her cataclysmic downfall” at the Tower before being imprisoned almost 1,000 days later in May 1536.

After King Henry VIII controversially divorced Catherine of Aragon without the Pope’s permission, Anne became his second wife.

Anne and Catherine married in 1533, but their marriage was short-lived because Anne, like Catherine, failed to provide a male heir for her King.

In 1536, just three years after their marriage, Henry had Anne arrested and imprisoned.
