The video is not edited the way I usually do. It's more "simple". The idea of doing a tribute about Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard was very constant in my mind but while I listened some music a year ago I could't find the proper song... So I decided to use an instrumental one and this one was the most striking for me and one of the most tragic in the moment. You can see it's linear from the start to the end, this lone aspect isn't original but the main theme was to point out the differents parallels and in fact, there is A LOT. I don't know how much time I spent just to detect the details and the differents reactions and other stuff like the cards and book of prophecy part. But the whole work gave me almost a year... lol, I should wear the name of Perseverance, just like Anne. Though it's a tribute about the two most unfortunate wives of the bloody tyr... erm Henry *apologies, your Majesty *, the video focused on the dynamics of the court, the manipulations and plots, the factions, the downfall of the previous wives and ministers. I know that the cases between Anne and Katherine were not really similar but I favourited the likeness.

Reason for Featuring:
- Fantastic Comparisons of Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard. So going to use some for our comparisons album.
- Just amazingly emotional.
