Henry VIII and the men who made him

Henry VIII and the men who made him

Borman, Tracy, author

Henry VIII is well known for his tumultuous relationships with women, and he is often defined by his many marriages. But what do we see if we take a different look? When we see Henry through the men in his life, a new perspective on this famous king emerges. Henry's relationships with the men who surrounded him reveal much about his beliefs, behaviour, and character. They show him to be capable of fierce, but seldom abiding loyalty; of raising men only to destroy them later. He loved to be attended and entertained by boisterous young men who shared his passion for sport, but at other times he was more diverted by men of intellect, culture, and wit. In this fascinating and often surprising biography, Tracy Borman reveals Henry's personality in all its multi-faceted, contradictory glory
