提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
HM
The king’s attentions are not initially honorable.
Women at the court were general viewed as either potential wives, wives or whores. I don’t believe that Henry was intend on making Anne his wife in the first moment he saw her, what he want to do was to bed her.
But Anne has other plans.
She refused to become the king’s mistress, she’s seen what could happen, her own sister Marine had been Henry’s mistress for a time, that wasn’t good enough for Anne, she knew what he wanted from a very early stage, she wanted to be queen.
Anne’s bold proposal is well-timed, for nearly 20 years, Henry has been married to Spanish prince Catherine V, but the Catherine has failed to conceive a son, and it’s now beyond child-bearing age.
He needs it, lasting male heirs to stave off many people have much more viable claim(索取) to the English crown than the Tudor’s did.
All good kings had sons to take their places when their died, and Henry didn’t have a son and this became more and more of an issue.
