Henry VIII was a King of England and a tyrant. He’s most known for his decree to create the Church of England. He’s also well know by the fact that he had six wives, two of whom he beheaded. He fathered Elizabeth I, who reigned England alone for over 40 years.
I’ve often found that just looking at his portrait intimidates me; I cannot imagine what he would have been like in the flesh. A lesser known fact about Henry VIII is that he wrote poems and love letters. Here’s one of his poems, “Green Groweth the Holly.”
