Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The story of Henry VIII and his six wives is a well-known example of the caprice and violence that dominated that king's reign. Now Derek Wilson examines a set of relationships that more vividly illustrate just how dangerous life was in the court of the Tudor lion. He tells the interlocking stories of six men-all, curiously enough, called Thomas-whose ambitions and principles brought them face to face with violent death, as recorded in a simple mnemonic: 'Died, beheaded, beheaded, Self-slaughtered, burned, survived.' Thomas Wolsey was an accused traitor on his way to the block when a kinder death intervened. Thomas More and Thomas Cromwell, whose convictions and policies could scarcely have been more different, both perished beneath the headman's axe. Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk, would have met the same end had the king's own death not brought him an eleventh hour reprieve. Thomas Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton, and Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, though outliving the monarch, perished as a result of that war of ambitions and ideologies which rumbled on after 1547. Wriothesley succumbed to poison of either body or mind in the aftermath of a failed coup. Cranmer went to the stake as a heretic at the insistence of Mary Tudor, who was very much the daughter of the father she hated. In the Lion's Court is an illuminating examination of the careers of the six Thomases, whose lives are described in parallel-their family and social origins, their pathways to the royal Council chamber, their occupancy of the Siege Perilous, and the tragedies that, one by one, overwhelmed them. By showing how events shaped and were shaped by relationships and personal destinies, Derek Wilson offers a fresh approach to the political narrative of a tumultuous reign. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: The story of Henry VIII and his six wives is a well-known example of the caprice and violence that dominated that King?s reign. Now renowned historian Derek Wilson examines a set of relationships that more vividly illustrate just how dangerous life was in the court of the Tudor lion. He tells the interlocking stories of six men?all curiously enough named Thomas?whose ambitions and principles brought them face to face with violent death, as recorded in a simple mnemonic: ?Died, beheaded, beheaded, Self-slaughtered, burned, survived.?

In the Lion?s Court is an illuminating examination of the careers of the six Thomases---
Thomas Wolsey, Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell, Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk, Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury and Thomas Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton---whose lives are described in parallel. Wilson traces their family and social origins, their pathways to the royal Council chamber, their occupancy of the Siege Perilous, and the tragedies that, one by one, overwhelmed them. By showing how events shaped and were shaped by relationships and personal destinies, Derek Wilson offers a fresh approach to the political narrative of a tumultuous reign.

Klappentext: Praise for In The Lion?s Court

"I cannot praise too highly Derek Wilson's prose style, which is both masterful and lively. He writes with great conviction and a breathtaking attention to the kind of personal detail that makes his books such compelling reading." --Alison Weir

"Revealing and disturbing." --Booklist

"In this exciting, scholarly book, the reader sees England and its religion being remade as men fight for office and power under an increasingly sour, unbalanced monarch." --The Dallas Morning News

?With encyclopedic complexity, the prolific Wilson traces the political webs of the period 1499-1559, ?the sixty most creative - and, therefore, most destructive ? years in [England?s] history.? Devotees of Tudor history will find much that is provocative and fresh.? --
Publishers Weekly

?Wilson displays an impressive command of early Tudor history and an even more impressive ability to interweave so many separate stands of the great story. Remarkable research, a masterful synthesis? --Kirkus Reviews

The study contains a brilliant series of parallel portraits - a fresh look at each Thomas's family and social origins, his education, his entry into "the lion's den" of the royal Council chamber, and his exit therefrom." --Library Journal
