The story of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII has been examined by many historians for almost 500 years. The rise and fall of the Boleyn family has been something that is puzzling to many people because of its fast and spectacular nature. However, many do not understand the amount of people contributing to the rise and fall of the family. This paper will look at the relationship between Henry and Anne in a different way. It will focus on the goals Henry and Anne hoped to accomplish together, separately, the goals of the people who surrounded them and what every person hoped to gain by aligning themselves correctly in the Tudor court. Tudor court political games would lead to the promotion and demotion of families and individuals. However, no family has risen and fallen like Anne and her family and that is because of the court and circumstances that surrounded them.
