Mark Smeaton escaping execution
I read in a journal years ago that a historian digging through archives of Cromwell and Henry's wife Anne. The archival material suggested that in exchange for giving false testimony about Anne having an affair, that Smeaton was given clemency and escaped execution. I never found that reference again but has anyone else ever heard of this documentation?
This question is now closed.
