  1. Haha as soon as you mentioned his wives that song started going through my head. I may be 20 years too old to do so really but I love watching horrible histories :p

  2. Love Horrible Histories, have you seen their Dick Turpin/Adam Ant mashup? Very good.

  3. He was like the Black Widow of dudes.

  4. Henry VIII and his fucked up family is one of my favorite periods of history to study. He makes my family look tame!
