Henry VIII 1491-1557 The Monster

Henry VIII 1491-1557 The Monster

Henry started his reign as the quintessential renaissance prince: handsome, educated, generous and lively. However he ended his reign as one of the most unstable, greedy, neurotic, paranoid, cruel and disgustingly obese English kings.
He dragged England to the Protestant faith only because he was desperate to divorce his first wife and marry Anne Bolyen in order to begat a male heir. Elizabeth I was the result.
His callousness and cruelty to his six wives is the stuff of legends.

I am an artist with a fascination with history. Not battles per se, but the culture and personalities that shape history. Gossip is good too.
