About This Book

Thomas Cromwell was the Henry's VIII's chief minister and principal reformer of the church in one of the most eventful eras in English history. As The Rise & Fall of Thomas Cromwell reveals, contemporary sources reveal a brilliant mind and expansive heart, a lover and patron of the arts and humanities, while short case studies shed new light on his relations with, and his reputation among, the Tudor populace. The final part narrates the drama of his downfall, and the king's posthumous exoneration of the 'most faithful servant he ever had'. Based on a massive amount of primary research, The Rise & Fall of Thomas Cromwell overturns the previously accepted view of one of Tudor England's most important personalities.
