On 23rd April 1536, St George’s Day, the annual chapter meeting of the Order of the Garter took place at Greenwich. Queen Anne Boleyn had put forward her brother, George Boleyn, Lord Rochford, to be elected Knight of the Garter, but Sir Nicholas Carew was elected instead.
Carew was said to be mentoring Jane Seymour to appeal to the King and was no friend of the Boleyns.
Was this a warning sign?
Was Anne Boleyn losing her influence?
