Royal History's Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley

Lucy Worsley discovers how the history of the Reformation has been manipulated and mythologised by generations of politicians and writers.

Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon created a religious and political schism between England and Europe that can be still be felt in Britain today. The Reformation is often portrayed as a lusty Royal soap opera, but Lucy reveals that it was about far more than a randy King in pursuit of a younger wife and a long-awaited male heir. It also laid the foundations for our modern constitution and economic power as an Empire.
