Getting Things Done with Henry VIII
A blog post from Todd Brown.
Thomas Cromwell was one of Henry’s closest advisors. Henry trusted Cromwell to deal with some of his most sensitive and important matters, including arranging and annulling some of Henry’s marriages. If he were to do the king’s bidding effectively, I expect that Cromwell wanted to be sure that he and Henry saw eye to eye on many things. Regularly discussing things with Henry would be critical.
Now Henry was a busy man. He did a lot of jousting and hunting, and with his six wives and a large court to entertain we can imagine there was a lot of wooing and feasting too.
Cromwell’s time with the king was precious. Cromwell knew, in order to maintain his trusted relationship with Henry, that his “face time” with the king needed to be put to good use.
So how did Cromwell prepare for his meetings with Henry?
