Upon her return to court, she again entered the service of Catherine of Aragon. Percy was married to Lady Mary Talbotto whom he had been betrothed since adolescence. InWyatt married Elizabeth Cobham, who by many accounts, was not a wife of his choosing.
InWyatt accompanied the royal couple to Calais in France. This may have been how she caught the eye of Henry, who was also an experienced player. But within a year, he proposed marriage to her, and she accepted. Both assumed an annulment could be obtained within a matter of months. There is no evidence to suggest that they engaged in a sexual relationship until very shortly before their marriage; Henry's love letters to Anne suggest that their love affair remained unconsummated for much of their seven-year courtship.
Henry's annulment It is probable that the idea of annulment not divorce as commonly assumed had suggested itself to Henry much earlier than this and was motivated by his desire for an heir to secure the Tudor claim to the crown. Before Henry's father Henry VII ascended the throne, England was beset by civil warfare over rival claims to the crown and Henry wanted to avoid a similar uncertainty over the succession.
He and Catherine had no living sons: Since Spain and England still wanted an alliance, a dispensation was granted by Pope Julius II on the grounds that Catherine was still a virgin. The marriage of Catherine and Henry took place inbut eventually he became dubious about its validity, due to Catherine's inability to provide an heir being seen as a sign of God's displeasure.
His feelings for Anne, and her refusals to become his mistress, probably contributed to Henry's decision that no Pope had a right to overrule the Bible. This meant that he had been living in sin with Catherine of Aragon all these years, though Catherine hotly contested this and refused to concede that her marriage to Arthur had been consummated.
It also meant that his daughter Mary was a bastard, and that the new Pope Clement VII would have to admit the previous Pope's mistake and annul the marriage. Henry's quest for an annulment became euphemistically known as the " King's Great Matter ". She determined that she would yield to his embraces only as his acknowledged queen. She began to take her place at his side in policy and in state, but not yet in his bed. There is anecdotal evidence, related to biographer George Wyatt by her former lady-in-waiting Anne Gainsford that Anne brought to Henry's attention a heretical pamphlet, perhaps Tyndale 's " The Obedience of a Christian Man " or one by Simon Fish called "Supplication for Beggars," which cried out to monarchs to rein in the evil excesses of the Catholic Church.
She was sympathetic to those seeking further reformation of the Church, and actively protected scholars working on English translations of the scriptures. Further, the most recent edition of Ives 's biography admits that Anne may very well have had a personal spiritual awakening in her youth which spurred her on, not just as catalyst but expediter for Henry's Reformation, though the process took a number of years. Insweating sickness broke out with great severity.
In Londonthe mortality rate was great and the court was dispersed. Henry left London, frequently changing his residence; Anne Boleyn retreated to the Boleyn residence at Hever Castle, but contracted the illness; her brother-in-law, William Carey, died. Henry sent his own physician to Hever Castle to care for Anne,  and shortly afterwards, she recovered. It soon became the one absorbing object of Henry's desires to secure an annulment from Catherine. In William Knightthe King's secretary, was sent to Pope Clement VII to sue for the annulment of his marriage to Catherine, on the grounds that the dispensing bull of Pope Julius II permitting him to marry his brother's widow, Catherine, had been obtained under false pretences.
Henry also petitioned, in the event of his becoming free, a dispensation to contract a new marriage with any woman even in the first degree of affinity, whether the affinity was contracted by lawful or unlawful connection. This clearly referred to Anne. In the end he had to return with a conditional dispensation, which Wolsey insisted was technically insufficient. But the Pope never had empowered his deputy to make any decision.
Convinced that Wolsey's loyalties lay with the Pope, not England, Anne, as well as Wolsey's many enemies, ensured his dismissal from public office in George CavendishWolsey's chamberlain, records that the servants who waited on the king and Anne at dinner in in Grafton heard her say that the dishonour that Wolsey had brought upon the realm would have cost any other Englishman his head. Henry replied, "Why then I perceive Public support remained with Queen Catherine.
One evening in the autumn ofAnne was dining at a manor house on the river Thames and was almost seized by a crowd of angry women. Anne just managed to escape by boat. Following these acts, Thomas More resigned as Chancellorleaving Cromwell as Henry's chief minister.
The ambassador from Milan wrote in that it was essential to have her approval if one wanted to influence the English government, a view corroborated by an earlier French ambassador in During this period, Anne Boleyn played an important role in England's international position by solidifying an alliance with France.
She established an excellent rapport with the French ambassador, Gilles de la Pommeraie. Anne and Henry attended a meeting with the French king at Calais in winterin which Henry hoped to enlist the support of Francis I of France for his intended marriage. On 1 SeptemberHenry granted her suo jure the Marquessate of Pembrokean appropriate peerage for a future queen;  as such she became a rich and important woman: The Pembroke lands and the title of Earl of Pembroke had been held by Henry's great-uncle,  and Henry performed the investiture himself.
Her father, already Viscount Rochford, was created Earl of Wiltshire. Henry also came to an arrangement with Anne's Irish cousin and created him Earl of Ormond. At the magnificent banquet to celebrate her father's elevation, Anne took precedence over the Duchesses of Suffolk and Norfolk, seated in the place of honour beside the King which was usually occupied by the Queen.
The conference at Calais was something of a political triumph, but even though the French government gave implicit support for Henry's remarriage and Francis I himself held private conference with Anne, the French King maintained alliances with the Pope which he could not explicitly defy. Events now began to move at a quick pace. On 23 MayCranmer who had been hastened, with the Pope's assent, into the position of Archbishop of Canterbury recently vacated by the death of Warham sat in judgement at a special court convened at Dunstable Priory to rule on the validity of the King's marriage to Catherine of Aragon.
He thereupon declared the marriage of Henry and Catherine null and void. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.

European hand fans[ edit ] Further information: European hand fans in the 18th century The fan was extensively used as a means of communication and therefore a way of flirting from the 16th century onwards in some European societies, especially England and Spain. A whole sign language was developed with the use of the fan, and even etiquette books and magazines were published.
The use of the fan was not limited to women, as men also carried fans and learned how to convey messages with them. For instance, placing the fan near the heart meant "I love you", while opening a fan wide meant "Wait for me". This use was highly popular during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
