Guest Ros Posted February 28, 2005 Report Share Posted February 28, 2005 The Mail On Sunday, a British newspaper published a book review of "The Last Days Of Henry VIII" by Robert Hutchinson. The review had the headline "Why Henry VIII had to have 6 wives...(It wasn't his fault, it was his hormones)", alongside a painting of him, with the big torso and skinny legs in tights! So I wasn't in too much doubt what it was going to say! The article says that the book cites the transformation from athletic, to obese, that he was a tyrant (psychotic), depression, ulcers, swollen neck and face, hump, and insomnia. And he only had three mistresses, so a definite sign of a low sex drive compared to other kings! If anyone wants to read the article then I can scan it and email it.
