Rise and Fall of Thomas Cromwell - video dailymotion
Her father had expelled papal authority from his realm and was therefore a natural ally for the English king. The result was flattering enough to convince him that she would make a pleasant wife, and the marriage treaty was duly signed. But when Henry met Anne soon after her arrival in England in December , he was bitterly disappointed. He never forgave the man who had got him into this mess. Thanks to his chief minister, Henry was married to a woman whom he found abhorrent and he was the enemy of Catholic Europe — not to mention many of his own subjects.
Cromwell was flailing, and the world knew it. It worked. Six days later, the king granted his minister the earldom of Essex, one of the most ancient and distinguished titles in the land. At the same time, he appointed him to the senior court office of lord great chamberlain and gave him extensive monastic lands. Cromwell arrived late for a meeting of the Privy Council on 10 June.
As he entered the chamber, the captain of the guard came forward and arrested him on charges of treason and heresy.
Barely had he time to draw breath before he was conveyed to the Tower. His fall from grace had been spectacular, even in a court renowned for its swift turns of fortune. Yet even now he retained some affection for his beleaguered minister because he sent him money in the Tower in order to make his imprisonment more comfortable. His plea fell on deaf ears. A bill of attainder, containing a host of trumped up charges, was passed on 29 June and Cromwell was beheaded on 28 July. Tracy Borman is a historian and bestselling author.
