One of the best history Conversations I've attended - I learned so much about a person I thought I knew. Dr. Mackay's take on Boleyn's career makes a lot of sense. I look forward to seeing more of her takes on history, especially Tudor history.
Dr. Mackay’s efforts to rehabilitate Thomas Boleyn’s reputation was quite persuasive. By starting with the Conquest, she was able to establish the Boleyns were already an influential family long before Anne was born.
Dr.Mackay delivered a lively, detail-rich, and fast-paced look into the life of Thomas Boleyn, an accomplished man who has frequently been misjudged by history. Her knowledge of her subject and the era was readily apparent!
This is a most informative seminar I've had on the subject of the Thomas Boleyn family! Dr. Mckay did a most interesting talk.
I thoroughly enjoyed this talk, and found it so interesting. It was refreshing to get a different perspective on Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn’s relationship and time as Queen, from the point of view of her father, Thomas Boleyn. I found his life fascinating and will definitely look at him a bit differently from now on, especially in regards to his relationships with his daughters, and Anne in particular. Dr Mackay was an informative and fun speaker, who made sure her audience understood the topic. Dr Mackay was open to answering questions at the end of the talk, and is obviously extremely knowledgeable in her area of expertise.
