Bowker Data Service Summary
Thomas Cromwell was a self-made lawyer, who served first Cardinal Wolsey and then Henry VIII. His time with Wolsey was an apprenticeship that served him well in his work for the king, after the Cardinal's fall from power in 1529. Cromwell's time in office from 1530 until his execution in 1540 was one of the most crucial periods in English history. This biography shows how he managed his relationship with Henry VIII and why he failed. It also shows how he manipulated the politics of the Court that eventually destroyed him.
