It is a study of early modern kingship as practised by one man. Henry had impressive strengths but also formidable weaknesses, amongst them inconstancy, financial irresponsibility and a capacity for brutality. This book examines his role in the English Church, Court and Parliaments, his relationship with councillors, ministers and wives, and his unrealistic search for military and imperial glory."--BOOK JACKET." ;
