Thomas Cromwell: The untold story of Henry VIII’s most faithful servant by Tracy Borman
- 27 November 2014 7-8pm
Thomas Cromwell is known to millions as the leading character in Hilary Mantel's bestselling Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies. But who was the real Cromwell? Although for years he has been reviled as a Machiavellian schemer who stopped at nothing in his quest for power, Thomas Cromwell was also a loving husband, father and guardian, a witty and generous host and a loyal and devoted servant. With new insights into Cromwell’s character, his family life and his close relationships with both Cardinal Wolsey and Henry VIII, joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces Tracy Borman reveals the life, loves and legacy of the man who changed the shape of England forever.
