Henry VIII and the Men Who Made Him: recorded lecture

An opportunity to watch our recent excellent live online Lecture by eminent historian and best selling author Tracy Borman 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.

Tracy Borman has extremely kindly agreed to give this lecture to help raise funds for the charity as it navigates very challenging times during the pandemic.  (Ignore the dates above)

You can receive the link to the Lecture now with the option of paying a donation, here.
