By all means, quote me if you need to. Someday I may be in the position to return the favor.

Good writing,

According to an article in The Independent, an injury sustained while jousting possibly caused a drastic personality shift in Henry VIII of England, from sweet to sour:

After the accident – just before he became estranged from the second of his six wives, Anne Boleyn – the king, once sporty and generous, became cruel, vicious and paranoid, his subjects began talking about him in a new way, and the turnover of his wives speeded up.

A pity.  He had such potential to be a truly benevolent sovereign.
