Henry VIII is one of the most famous monarchs in English history. He was born in 1491, he became king in 1509, and he ruled England until his death in 1547. We tend to think of Henry as a fat old man at the end of his life, after marrying and disposing of several of his six wives, suffering from what doctors now believe to be gout and potentially even untreated diabetes. This is only part of Henry’s story and, as a young man, he was rather different.
