Join eminent historian and best selling author Tracy Borman live and online as she shares insights from her research, and excerpts from her book Henry VIII and the Men who Made Him. Henry VIII is famous for his multiple marriages, but it was the men in his life who shaped this notorious monarch – and he, in turn, determined their fates. In this talk we are introduced to a dazzling cast of characters: some ‘mad’ (Sir Francis Bryan, the so-called ‘Vicar of Hell’), some ‘bad’ (the grasping minister Thomas Wolsey) – but none as ‘dangerous to know’ as Henry VIII himself.
‘An outstanding work of historical artistry, a brilliantly woven and pacy story of the men who surrounded, influenced and sometimes plagued Henry VIII.’ – Alison Weir
