Update: New Articles Series

Starting Monday, I am going to begin a new article series entitled All The King's Men. My goal with it is to investigate the men (rather than the women) surrounding Henry VIII.

Henry VIII and a few of his male companions as represented in "The Tudors"
I am going to start with William Compton who, I have discovered in my research, was far more important to Henry and the Royal Court than history has made him seem to be.

Please check back Monday for the first post!

  1. William Compton (not to be confused with the Vampire Bill Compton from True Blood)! What an excellent choice to kick off your series with!
    There is A LOT of interesting information on him to share, and I do agree with you that he is often glossed over, or merely portrayed as an infamous, sordid part of Henry's personal life, rather than an influential member of his inner circle. I look forward to checking back to read your first post in your new series!
