Sir Francis Bryan Henry VIII's most notorious ambassador by Sarah-Beth Watkins

This is a very factual book about this diplomat and soldier, who was nicknamed the 'Vicar of Hell' because he liked womanising and drinking. It's hard to feel as if you really know what he was like from reading the book, but it is filled with interesting details about the sixteenth century, Henry's court and Sir Francis's heavy involvement in The Great Matter, and it includes extracts from letters and other documents.

I enjoyed it, but not as much as the author's other books.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
