Thomas Cromwell

James Frain

A key player in the Reformation and supporter of the Royal Supremacy, it was Thomas Cromwell’s efforts that finally won King Henry his first divorce. As a result, Cromwell was rewarded with the position of chief minister but later fell out of favor with the king when the marriage he arranged between Henry and Anne of Cleves turned out to be a flop. No big surprise that he ended up getting the axe.
