Mary Boleyn: You know I love him...
Anne Boleyn: Well, I guess you'll have to stop.

May God have mercy on Anne's soul.

King Henry VIII

Anne Boleyn: Good Christian people, I am come hither to die, for according to the law, and by the law I am judged to die, and therefore I will speak nothing against it. I am come hither to accuse no man, nor to speak anything of that, whereof I am accused and condemned to die, but I pray God save the king and send him long to reign over you, for a gentler nor a more merciful prince was there never: and to me he was ever a good, a gentle and sovereign lord. And if any person will meddle of my cause, I require them to judge the best. And thus I take my leave of the world and of you all, and I heartily desire you all to pray for me. O Lord have mercy on me, to God I commend my soul.

What will the King say when he finds out that I cannot bear children?

Anne Boleyn

[to Anne and Mary] I am Katherine, Queen of England, the King's one true wife and mother of the heir to the throne. Beloved of the people, and beloved of a King you have bewitched.

Katherine of Aragon

King Henry VIII: [talking in secret] Your sister is gone as you wished. Will you give yourself to me now?
Anne Boleyn: No. When you are loyal to me above all others.
King Henry VIII: But I am.
Anne Boleyn: No. You are loyal to the queen above all others.
King Henry VIII: I bearly see Catherine.
Anne Boleyn: But she sits on a throne beside you. Your right hand in matters of state.
King Henry VIII: For appearances-sake only.
Anne Boleyn: Still, she is your queen. And ever present.
Anne Boleyn: I feel her eyes on me. And those of her spies. Look at us. Forever reduced to meeting in secret like this. Speaking in whispers. Hardly condusive to passion.
King Henry VIII: What you have me do then?

Mary Boleyn: Mother, please! Speak to father... Do something... I don't want to go!
Lady Elizabeth: This is not a request. We have been summoned.
[gets up and leaves the room]
Mary Boleyn: [to Anne] Please don't be angry with me... You think I desired to go for this purpose?
Anne Boleyn: All I know is that a man who didn't know who you were was with you in that room for a half-hour and came out completely besotted!
[starts to leave]
Anne Boleyn: Don't know what you said or did!
Mary Boleyn: Nothing sister! Except sing your praises and talk about my husband.
Anne Boleyn: Really? Well, you must show me how you did that sometime!

[preparing for the King's arrival] It costs a fortune to get this house ready for a royal visit!

Lady Elizabeth

George Boleyn: [about Henry Percy] He's betrothed.
Anne Boleyn: Betrothed is not married... It is a long way on bended knee to the altar.

Anne Boleyn: [on Mary's wedding night] You afraid?
Mary Boleyn: A little.
Anne Boleyn: I should be able to tell you how it will be tonight; give you advice on what to do. I failed you as an elder sister.
Mary Boleyn: No one could wish for a better sister.

Anne Boleyn: Do I have a choice?
King's Messenger: No.

Risk nothing and you gain nothing.
