Henry VIII and the Men Who Made Him

  • This event has passed.

Tracy Borman

Saturday 12th October 12:40 - 13:40 | Northwood House

Henry VIII is famous for being the king who married six times. But it was the men in his life, far more than the women, who shaped this notorious monarch. In this talk, based upon her major new biography, Henry VIII and the Men Who Made Him, Tracy Borman will tell the story of England’s most famous monarch through the eyes of the men who surrounded him: relations, servants, ministers, rivals, confidantes and companions. She will introduce a dazzling cast of characters: some ‘mad’ (Sir Frances Bryan, the so-called ‘Vicar of Hell’), some ‘bad’ (the grasping minister, Thomas Wolsey), but none as ‘dangerous to know’ as Henry VIII himself. It was these men who shaped Henry into the man – and the monster – that he would become. And he, in turn, dictated their fates.
