Without doubt, the English Tudor King, Henry VIII must Â be one of the mostÂ famous.Â And this week we are commemorating HenryÂ¹s birthday.
Head of the Tudor dynasty, he had an unequalled and mostly turbulentÂ personal life – six wives in total, many mistresses, and because of hisÂ fixation on having a male heir, even changing the countryÂ¹s religion to theÂ Church of England.
An excessive lover and ruthless ruler, he ordered no less than 72,000Â executions during his 36 year reign, (including the beheading of two of hisÂ wives).
Larger than life, Henry was indeed one of EnglandÂ¹s mightiest monarchs!
