|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The subject of this article is a real-life person, group, company, product, or creative work that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
It is a popular historical theory that Boleyn, accused by Muggles of being a witch, was actually a Squib. This theory was disbelieved by many Wizards and Muggles, namely because the accuser was Henry VIII, who accused her of witchcraft to seduce him into marriage, and made the accusations after she fell from royal favor after multiple stillbirths.
Notes and references
- ↑ Earlier historians considered 1507 to be the accepted date but in 1981, the art historian Hugh Paget successfully demonstrated that a letter Anne had written in 1513 from Brussels when she was a maid of honour in that court, a position which was only open to a 12- or 13-year-old, was not the hand of a six-year-old.

- ↑ If this is true, then, at least in the Potter-verse, then Henry's claims of being "bewitched" by Anne may be possible as it is unknown as to whether the ability to use magic is required to make love potions; if not, then it is possible that Anne made them and smuggled them to Henry.
