||Thomas Cromwell was one of the strongest supporters of the English Reformation. At a time when lineage meant everything, Cromwell rose from poor beginnings to become chief minister to King Henry VIII. However, at the moment of his greatest triumph, Cromwell was struck down and destroyed. He fell victim to the King's anger and was beheaded on 28 July 1540. Cromwell has gone down in history as ambitious and corrupt; a ruthless politician who destroyed people and institutions. Journey through Tudor England in search of the truth about Henry VIII's best servant.
