Henry VIII And the Men Who Made Him by Tracy Borman
7 Apr 2021
We are deighted to announce that the renowned historian and author Tracy Borman will be talking to us about her new biography of Henry VIII.
He is famous for being the king who married six times. But it was the men in his life, far more than the women, who shaped this notorious monarch. In this talk, Tracy will tell the story of England’s most famous monarch through the eyes of the men who surrounded him: relations, servants, ministers, rivals, confidantes and companions.
She will introduce 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.
The talk is free to all and the Zoom link will be available on the day via the Kew Society website. www.kewsociety.org
