Power struggles at the court of King Henry VIII, pomp and pageantry, behind-the-scenes scheming, suspense, and intrigue mark this fascinating history of one of England’s most complex and notorious kings. The final play of Shakespeare’s life is broadly human, focused on the moral tension of leadership and the humility that comes with governance.
