Mention Henry VIII.  Anyone familiar with history envisions a rotund monarch with a penchant for trading wives.  How many were there? Five, six, seven?  Is he called “the Eighth” because he had eight wives?  In pursuit of a male heir, he had six wives who would be “Divorced, beheaded, died; divorced, beheaded, lived.”  Did he need a son to legitimize the Tudor dynasty – or did he just have a wandering codpiece? How rotund was he? A 52 inch waist meant he was winched onto his horse.  Did Anne Boleyn “bewitch” him?  Her vestigial sixth finger was a sign of witchcraft.  Henry probably planned her execution while lying in bed not with a new woman but with a bloody animal pelt.  What better way to distract bodily fleas and lice?  Join us for an era that was bloody in more ways than one.
