Hey Olivia; there's a very good article on Anne Boleyn on the online encyclopedia, Wikipedia. Just go to www.wikipedia.org and have a look at it (it's a bit long, but very good.) Personally, I think Anne Boleyn was very ambitious but also very religious and these two attitudes helped shape her choices - she believed passionately in God and the rules of Christianity (i.e. not sleeping with anyone before marriage and not committing adultery) but she was also determined to have a lot of power for herself and become the best she could be (i.e. getting rid of Cardinal Wolsey & Katherine of Aragon and becoming queen of England herself.) I hope this helps.

She was an avid reader of Lutheran and other anti-catholic works and was essential in the shaping of England as a protestant country from a religious point of view and reall believed in it...it was not merely a vessel to help her achieve her aim-marriage to Henry.
Also, she was an overshadowed member of a very ambitious family and so had a lot of pesonal ambition.
