10' of their ideas about being female in the 1500s. Interesting little comments about etiquette of those days for both nobles and peasants. I don't know how accurate each of their claims is. The Other Boleyn Girl is fiction. If you're like me, you simply have to take it on faith that this is all true, as I don't care enough to look it all up in reliable sources. This is colorful in any case. Women fundamentally as a beast of burden. The male as foremost. The rarity of women expressing themselves intellectually. Others deciding what they shall do in life. Marrying someone who may be old enough to be your grandfather or young enough to be your son. The fact that marriage is about love is a very modern invention.
