He Was a Scrooge When It Came to Henry VIII

King Henry VIII of England

Charles Dickens didn’t mince words when it came to King Henry VIII: “The plain truth is, that he was a most intolerable ruffian, a disgrace to human nature, and a blot of blood and grease upon the History of England.”

  1. Very true. Apart from Anne Boleyn the ugly, nagging b*tch, none of the poor people he killed deserved to die. He killed his wives, his cousins, his aunt Margaret Pole, his close friends Norris, Carew, Thomas More, Cromwell, and he was even considering killing his daughter, Queen Mary. And he had Queen Katherine of Aragon confined to bad castles and didn’t let her see Mary. Not a single person was safe from his wrath.
    Not to mention his mass murder of the participants of the Pilgrimage of Grace. Idiotic, worthless bastard.
    He was, indeed, a ruffian. H deserved to be hanged, drawn and quartered
