Historical Context:
Wax rubbing of the funerary brass of Sir Thomas Bullen (d. 1538). The original brass is located at St. Peter’s church in Kent, England. Today he is most famous for being the father of Ann Boelyn, the second wife of King Henry the IIV. During his life he served in the military and won royal favor, lands and titles. After Ann was put to death the family name was disgraced and he died “quietly” soon after.
