Mary Boleyn: A Tudor Beauty Unveiled!

The subject of this month’s Tudor Travel Show: Extra is the re-attribution of a ‘Portrait of an Unknown Lady’, now known to be Mary Boleyn, sister of Anne. Here, I am posting the picture for those of you who wish to see a visual to accompany the episode in which I speak to Justin Davies, one of the key researchers on the project. You can listen to the episode here.
