On this day in Tudor history, 23rd August 1535, royal favourite and keen reformer Sir Nicholas Poyntz welcomed King Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, to his home Acton Court in Iron Acton, South Gloucestershire, as part of the couple’s royal progress.
It was important for courtiers to impress the king and his consort, and Poyntz built a new wing on his property just for the royal couple!
Claire Ridgway, founder of the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society, tells us all about it in today's talk.
