Henry VIII, being such a complex character with a rather interesting life, has been summarised for the general population through school and drama. It is interesting therefore to discover the myths that have built up around him. One which I realised surprised people the most was the discovery that he was not buried in splendour and certainly not in Westminster Abbey. Read more about it in the article I have written for BBC history magazine online.
Until next time, take care!
