David Starkey: The Change 1509-33

The second lecture looks at the change in Henry: from the ideal prince at the time of his accession, with his high ideals of virtue, glory and immortality, to the tyrant of his maturity. It blames the crisis of his divorce, which split his family and destroyed his closest friendships.

Recorded in the Conference Centre on 2 June 2009
