Henry VIII


Prince Harry

Summary Prince Harry

Henry doubtless learned many political lessons from his stern father. However, the fact that he was kept away from direct education in the administrative duties of kingship – and left instead to his books, his sporting, and his music – weighed significantly on his future methods of rulership. Henry was a very talented, accomplished young man who could impress all and sundry with his charm and commanding, princely personality. He was not, however, educated to be a diligent administrator or a man with sober, penetrating political judgment. Very self-assured at a young age, it was left to be seen how this extraordinary self-assurance – without an extroardinary political temperament – would serve him as king of all England.
