Private Lives of the Monarchs: EPISODE 2
King Henry VIII
The popular image of Henry VIII is that of an overweight tyrant with multiple wives and an obsession with fathering a son and heir. But there's another side to his story-- that of a youthful, chivalrous king capable of great tenderness and love. Host Tracy Borman reveals the real Henry VIII, a Renaissance man who made England fantastically wealthy before a tragic accident transformed him into the infamous monarch we know today.
