The official synopsis reads: "For 500 years we have been drip-fed a story about Anne Boleyn: the cold-hearted scheming seductress who bewitched Henry VIII into marrying her, before sleeping with his best friend. Oh, and her own brother. But because history is written by the victors, we have never heard her side of the story.

"This series will take you inside her mind and follow events from her perspective. Anne openly dares to see herself as the King’s equal. She sees a future in which her daughter – a female! - could rule. She refuses to fall in line. But these are dangerous attributes in the Tudor court – a competitive world riddled with misogyny and machismo."

She continued: "Obviously, her legend has perhaps dwarfed even the truth of who she was as a person in real life. She's majorly influential in so many different ways, and I think it’s interesting how much about her story gets under people’s skin, even now."
