    Thank you for a wonderful, very informative, interesting video! I appreciate your time. I’m very interested in Cromwell, and your talk was eye opening. I’m much looking forward to your book about his letters, too, and I’ll keep an eye out for it. Thanks again! Michelle t

    Thank you Caroline, this is a very insightful presentation on an intimate letters and personal character of Thomas Cromwell. I have read the letters but its beautiful to put them into context and I am looking forward to your book. I still believe Cromwell was a tough guy but we have to remember he was the King’s servant and we have to see his actions in the context of giving Henry wealth, the wife he wanted, the reformation, the political changes of the day and everything else which was turning England and the Low Countries upside down. He has been misunderstood and having recently read McCullough and Schofield you see a much deeper and human Cromwell. I can imagine him as a scribbler with many lists and notes. At the end of the day he was the right man for the job Henry Viii wanted to do. Cheers for a wonderful video.

    I love Thomas Cromwell. He is so interesting. I thinks he gets a bad rap today. 🤔
