Speaker Helen Poole is a historian and archaeologist. She has many interesting talks on a variety of subjects, but her great interest is in Anne of Cleves. Anne was Henry VIII’s fourth wife, briefly. She agreed to an annulment and remained in England for the rest of her life. She was referred to as the King’s Beloved Sister and outlived the rest of Henry’s wives. She was given a generous settlement including Richmond Palace, Hever Castle and Bletchingley Palace and was remembered by everyone who served her as a particularly generous and easy-going mistress.
