  • Dormer is related to <a class="external" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Jane Dormer">Jane Dormer, Duchess of Feria</a>, a lady in waiting to <a class="external" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Mary I of England">Mary I</a>, the real Boleyn's estranged step-daughter. Jane was the half-sister of the Catholic former Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, had been the loyal companion of Mary Tudor; after Mary's death, she led several Tudor noblewomen into Catholic exile in Spain. She had become a Spanish Countess, and after a duchess, by her marriage to the Duke of Feria, Philip II of Spain's former representative in England. Jane Dormer's memoirs contain some evidence on the real Boleyn's age, which is still a source of much academic dispute.
