I was messing about trying to decide who each of the characters is probably loosely based on from history. What do you think? Sound right/wrong/anyone I’ve missed?
King: Henry VIII
MC: Anne Boleyn
MC 1st born: Elizabeth 1st
King’s first wife: Cathrine of Aragon.
Juanita: Mary 1st.
Mendosa: Thomas Wyatt? (Poet)
Young girl your MC is worried about (Can’t remember her name)- Jane Seymore (Although there’s a number of people it could have been).
Thomas- Henry FitzRoy (Lady Blount’s illegitimate child with the King).
Vega: Thomas More?
Torres: Henry Percy? (Although I think from memory he was a higher station than Anne, rather than the other way around in this book).
