This thesis is a case study that explores the life and influence of Mary Boleyn, royal mistress to King Henry VIII from 1522-1525. The intent is to present an analysis of primary documents in combination with secondary sources, which provide crucial context in regards to religion, politics, and gender, provide a comprehensive understanding of mid-Tudor court life. This thesis discusses the wider context of Mary Boleyn’s immediate family and their opportunities for increased political power during this period. Boleyn’s early life and education, tenure as royal mistress, and later life of continued royal favor are integral to the theory of this historic woman’s influence.
