The story goes back to England in 1536, when the fate of Anne Boleyn was sealed by an executioner. It was Jane Seymour's duty to give King Henry VIII a healthy heir. Amidst all these events, Thomas Cromwell ascended from the gutters of Putney to the courts of the king, gaining the highest rank near to his master. King Henry's nobles were disgusted by the power that Cromwell had attained. Soon, the threat of invasion loomed, and the king's legacy was at risk. Thomas Cromwell was defenceless.
