9m 0s
“I never saw this realme in better order quietness & obedience than it was in the tyme of the Cardinal´s authority and rule, nor Justice better ministered with indifference”, wrote someone who knew Wolsey at first hand. But what was in it for Henry to have a corpulent clergyman, who was also the loving father of at least one child, govern the country in his name? How successful was Wolsey’s domestic policy? This podcast looks at finance, legal, social, government and administration, with the key concept being the "Rise of the Favourite".
