10 June – Thomas Cromwell is arrested

On this day in Tudor history, 10th June 1540, King Henry VIII's right-hand man and 'fixer', Thomas Cromwell, Earl of Essex, was arrested.

In today's "on this day" video, I share an account of what happened on that day, the day when Henry VIII's loyal servant fell from power and was escorted to the Tower of London.
