Description

Talk

490 years ago Thomas Wolsey - King Henry VIII’s former favourite - fell from grace following his failure to secure the king a divorce. This talk by Daniel Gosling, examines the records held at The National Archives which detail this fall - from records relating to Wolsey’s failure to grant Henry an annulment, to the legal processes which sealed his fate.

The talk will be followed by an accompanying document display.
