Henry - 1536

Suzannah Lipscomb, research curator at Hampton Court Palace, explains why the year 1536 was pivotal in Henry's transformation in the public eye from a benign ruler to a tyrant.

Suzannah Lipscomb, Research Curator at Hampton Court Palace, focuses on one pivotal year in Henry's life - 1536. It was a year of betrayal and injury, from a serious wound in a joust which influenced his health for the rest of his life, to the execution of Anne Boleyn for adultery, following her miscarriage and the death of the longed for male heir. Henry ended the year a different and more dangerous man than he had begun it.
