Существует 17 любовных писем Генриха VIII к Анне Болейн (они хранятся в архивах Ватикана). Однако до наших дней дошло только одно любовное письмо самой Анны. Точная дата его написания не известна, но, основываясь на содержании его можно отнести к лету-ранней осени 1526. Считается, что это ее первое любовное письмо к Генриху…
В письме Анна благодарит короля за назначение ее фрейлиной при Катерине Арагонской и, что самое важное, принимает любовное признание Генриха...


Sir,

It belongs only to the august mind of a great king, to whom Nature has given a heart full of generosity towards the sex, to repay by favors so extraordinary an artless and short conversation with a girl. Inexhaustible as is the treasury of your majesty's bounties, I pray you to consider that it cannot be sufficient to your generosity; for, if you recompense so slight a conversation by gifts so great, what will you be able to do for those who are ready to consecrate their entire obedience to your desires? How great soever may be the bounties I have received, the joy that I feel in being loved by a king whom I adore, and to whom I would with pleasure make a sacrifice of my heart, if fortune had rendered it worthy of being offered to him, will ever be infinitely greater. The warrant of maid of honor to the queen induces me to think that your majesty has some regard for me, since it gives me means of seeing you oftener, and of assuring you by my own lips (which I shall do on the first opportunity) that I am, Your majesty's very obliged and very obedient servant, without any reserve,

Anne Boleyn
