Henry Tudor wanted immortality as a king who made England strong and powerful. Essential to that, he believed, was the provision of a male heir. In pursuit of this goal, he divorced one wife, beheaded another, disposed of two chief ministers and declared himself head of the Church in England. He could be boisterously playful and passionately in love, but, as disappointments mounted, he became increasingly bitter and tyrannical. This latest edition includes representations of Henry VIII in the media, as well as a list of locations to visit.
