HENRY VII’S HATED HENCHMEN
Here is a link to an interesting article first published in the BBC History Magazine in October 2016. Written by Steven Gunn, a professor of early modern history at Merton College, Oxford, the article gives appraisals of five of the ‘upstart’ advisers who Henry came to rely upon and their varying fates.
Professor Gunn, however, somewhat frustratingly, does go on to repeat the tired old myth that Wyatt endured torture ‘at the hands of Richard III’ as if it were fact. Not so – this old chestnut was kicked into the long grass by Annette Carson in her excellent 2012 article The Questionable Legend of Henry Wyatt
