An illuminating examination of the careers of the six Thomases of Henry VIII.Most history lovers are familiar with the story of the six wives of Henry VIII. Now Derek Wilson examines a set of relationships which more vividly illustrate just how dangerous life was in the court of the Tudor lion.

He tells the interlocking stories of six men – all, curiously, called Thomas: Wolsey, Howard, More, Cromwell, Wriothesley and Cranmer. The ambitions and principles of these men brought them face to face with violent death, as recorded in a simple mnemonic: “Died, beheaded, beheaded, self-slaughtered, burned, survived.”
