In the autumn of November 1997 a rare illuminated manuscript came up for sale at one of the London auction houses. It was the Book of Hours which had once belonged to Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife, Anne Boleyn. It was discovered that she had made a significant entry on the page of The Day of Judgement. In her neat handwriting were the ominous words, ‘le temps viendra’ (the time will come).
