Historically accurate, very detailed history of Thomas Wolsey, son of an English butcher - he rose to become Cardinal of his Church, Lord Chancellor of the nation and mentor to his monarch. Additionally, he helped preside over the destruction of the feudal system in England and at his fall, the seperation of England from Rome.
