Henry VIII is well known for his tumultuous relationships with women, and he is often defined by his many marriages. But what do we see if we take a different look?

Henry's relationships with the men who surrounded him reveal much about his beliefs, behaviour and character. They show him to be capable of fierce, but seldom abiding loyalty; of raising men only to destroy them later.

Often trusting and easily led by his male attendants and advisers during the early years of his reign, he matured into a profoundly suspicious and paranoid king whose favour could be suddenly withdrawn, as many of his later servants found to their cost. His cruelty and ruthlessness would become ever more apparent as his reign progressed, but the tenderness that he displayed towards those he trusted proves that he was never the one-dimensional monster that he is often portrayed as.Join Chorleywood Bookshop and joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces, Tracy Borman on Tuesday 30th October, 7.30pm at The Junction, WD3 5SG for a night of history and scandal and see this well-known monarch in a new light, as she once again brings the Tudor court to life with her meticulous research and vivid storytelling.
