Tudor Times Insights: Thomas Wolsey, Henry VIII's Cardinal £3.00
Cardinal Wolsey was Henry VIII's chief minister for some fifteen years - during that period, he negotiated treaties, organised military campaigns, planned the great spectacle of the Field of Cloth of Gold, and managed Henry's business in Parliament. He also found time to found a school and a college. He was loved by the King, but hated by everyone else, so when he failed to gain the King's divorce, there was no-one to speak for him. This Tudor Times Insight covers all of the main aspects of Wolsey's rise and fall.
Tudor Times Insights are short but comprehensive introductions to Tudor and Stewart personalities.
