Subject: RE: BS: Henry VIII - The Mind of a Tyrant
There were,as I remember, 72 thousand executions in England during his reign. Given the tiny population of England , about 3 million, - I'd say tyrant was drawing it pretty mild. Absolute bastard is a term which springs readily to mind.
I'm Tudor history nut. I 've loved all of Starkey and Lucy Worsley's programmes. I've visited Hampton Court twice this year. and the great hall at Westminster, The Tower of London and Tower Hill, where poor old Thomas Cromwell and Sir Thomas More got the chop.
