Y O U R T H O R N SHistory:
they kiss my blood your beauty heals
I was born at Bickling Hall, in April of 1504. We lived mostly at Hever Castle in Kent after I was born however. I was always destined for the life my father led, and was given the finest education to allow that fortune to come to pass. Shortly after my sister Anne was sent off to the court of the Archduchess, Father took me to court, and I acted in a mummery and attended an indoor melee.
The young King took notice of me, and made me a pageboy. I served in that capacity for several years, learning to navigate the castle and court politics. When I was not in service to the King, I attended Oxford to further my education, and spent a year in France while my father was on an ambassadorial mission there. It is where I perfected my French. I am fluent in French, and can speak some Italian and Latin.
At 18, I was given, in joint with my father, a grant for various manors in Kent. At 20, I received Grimston Manor as an early wedding present. I was a firm favorite of the King at this time, and we won and lost enormous sums of money on dice, bowls, tennis and cards. I was appointed as a gentleman of the privy chamber in 1525, although Wolsey was not happy with the King doing so. Also, in that year, I was wed to Jane Parker, daughter of Lord Morley. When the court restructured, I lost my position, but the next year I was appointed royal cupbearer, and Jane and I were given another twenty pounds a year to live on.
I'm afraid I wasn't a very nice husband. I was far less than faithful, and Jane was very unhappy in our marriage. I suppose that had I been more mature or more caring about her feelings, she might have found some pleasure in our union. I always thought of her as my "pretty Jane", but rarely told her so. She confronted me about my affairs, and I was cruel in my disdain for her concern and outrage.
Our family continued to rise in power, and with Anne sparking the King's interest, things are looking well for the Boleyn's. The sweat found me at Waitham Abbey, lying me low. It also found my pretty Jane, and called her home. I am still recovering from the sickness, and mourning the loss of my wife, although I should have been kinder to her in life. The illness has made me look at my wastrel life and re-evaluate things. I swore to God that I would be a better man if I recovered, and since he has blessed me with the miracle of recovery, I will keep to that.
Since my recovery, King Henry has seen fit to appoint me Esquire of the Body and Master of the King's Buckhounds. And now, Anne is to be ennobled. Our family is riding high, but I attempt to never forget that it could be stolen away quickly. I am changing my entire life, because of my vow, and I'm not entirely certain what it will mean for me, for my family, and for my ambitions.Personality:
Prior to my illness, I was rude, obnoxious, cruel and petty. I was far more concerned with my own rise to power as well as my own enjoyment of life to worry about much of anything else. I would sleep around, threaten people, bribe and cajole to get what I wanted, regardless of whom I hurt or harm that I caused.
Now, I am working to be a better Christian. I firmly believe the God has saved me to prove what can be done with a sinner who now truly repents of their previous life. I attempt to be kind, generous, giving and accepting to those I meet. I still have ambitions and hopes and dreams, but I try to find a way to accomplish them without putting anyone else in harm's way. My family pushes me to do all that I can do, and I am very dedicated to serving the King. I fail sometimes, but I'm trying to be a better person.
