Boleyn was the aunt of Elizabeth I of England.
Boleyn accompanied Mary Tudor, Queen of France to Paris in 1514 as her maid of honor, and attended her wedding to Louis XII of France.
During her time as a member of the French court, Boleyn was rumored to have been a romantic interest of Francis I of France, and they possibly had an affair. Francis called Mary by a variety of endearments.
Boleyn was royal mistress to Henry VIII, beginning in 1521, when I was 21 years old. Their relationship continued for 5 years, though Boleyn was never officially named royal mistress. Their affair ended around 1526. They would have still seen each other frequently at court, and appeared to have remained amicable. In 1533, he married Boleyn's sister, and became her brother-in-law. After she married another, low-birthed man for love, he furiously banished Boleyn from court in 1534, and she was never allowed to return. However, after selling her family's Hever Castle years later, he unexpectedly sent her a portion of the proceeds.
