Top 10 Heads That Rolled During the Reign of Henry VIII
Most people had no idea so many died under his reign. I certainly didn’t. I am not sure if I read it correctly but according to this page with the link provided over 72,000 people died. Wow! That’s a lot of people. What was he doing? Killing someone every single day? I was aware of some of the famous ones like Thomas Cromwell, John Beck, Anne Boelyn, Kate Howard, and Thomas Moore. Yes, he killed the author of “Utopia”
Later history states that Jane Seymour died but earlier history states she was executed. I guess history changed too to suit whomever rewriting it.
Well, if this information is correct he killed anyone who peeved him off and for the infantile reasons. That included wives, in-laws, relatives, advisors, nuns, priests and I image it included milk maids and pages too. Nowadays we have a name for such people. It’s homicidal psychopath.
