My hypothesis was: What did I plan to do? To learn some facts about Henry VIII biography; to find information about his political and personal life; to analyze all the facts I could find about Henry VIII ; to find out if he really was as “Great and Bloody” as that. Henry was capricious and cruel. He beheaded all his wives! So, he was really bloody. We can’t call such people Great.
Henry VII, had been a thrifty ruler and left a large treasure behind him. It did not take his son long to spend it. On his death his treasury was practically empty. His son Henry VIII was more ambitious, hoping to play an important part in European politics. He was unsuccessful.

The Tower of London. At this place Ann Boleyn and another wife of Henry VIII were beheaded.
