Profile of Henry VIII
The king’s life story was told by William Shakespeare in his play Henry VIII… According to the official site of the British royal family, Henry “was an accomplished player of many instruments and a composer. ‘Greensleeves,’ the popular melody frequently attributed to him is, however, almost certainly not one of his compositions”… He has been played onscreen many times, by actors including Robert Shaw (A Man For All Seasons, 1966), Charlton Heston (Crossed Swords, 1977), Eric Bana (The Other Boleyn Girl, 2008), and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (the TV series Tudors, 2007.)
