Anniversary of Thomas Cromwell's execution

On the day after the anniversary of Thomas Cromwell's execution, it is high time to reappraise this much misunderstood figure.

This History Files posting is of great interest. The knotted rope incident (featured in "Six Wives", where TC is portrayed by the very wonderful Wolf Morris) turns out to be bogus.

Readers of this blog will undoubtedly wish to consult other articles on this site.
