The stories, as well as the places, are important. The stories and places intersect in different ways. For Thornbury Castle, Kirby Hall, Buckland Abbey, Sherborne Castle and Hardwick Hall, the buildings are very closely tied up with the fates of their owners. It is as if the destiny of the owner has been played out in stone and glass. Others are places that shaped people, not places shaped by people. Trinity and St John’s Colleges in Cambridge and Lincoln’s Inn in London were the training grounds of the astrologer Dr John Dee and the martyr Sir Thomas More.
Wyatt wrote of seeing those accused of adultery with Anne Boleyn executed on Tower Hill: These bloody days have broken my heart … The bell tower showed me such a sight That in my head sticks day and night. There did I learn out of a grate, For all favour, glory, or might, That yet circa regna tonat [thunder rolls around the throne of kings]. The Tower was also a place of death. In 1536, Anne Boleyn was imprisoned in the Queen’s lodgings, which ran from the Lanthorn Tower up towards the White Tower: precisely where she had stayed before her coronation three years earlier.
Holbein would have transferred the image to the wall by pricking tiny holes along the ink lines, and brushing charcoal through the holes to leave dots on the wall behind. Three of Henry VIII’s wives are represented here, too. Katherine of Aragon was painted in miniature [see PETERBOROUGH CATHEDRAL] in 1525, probably by Lucas Horenbout, and is also depicted in an unflattering eighteenth-century copy of another picture that, judging by her clothing, was painted in the same year. A portrait of Anne Boleyn dates from the late sixteenth century (no agreed portraits survive from her lifetime): she wears her famous ‘B’ pendant.
