About this audiobook

This extraordinary "eye-witness" account of Wolsey's rise and fall from power was written between 1554-1558 by his gentleman usher, George Cavendish. Cavendish was privy to much of the Cardinal's ambitious endeavours. Cavendish died three years after its completions at the age of 62. This rare document considered "the most important single source for our knowledge of Wolsey", was edited for easy comprehension by Roger Lockyer, former faculty member, Royal Holloway College, University of London and an authority on the tumultuous Tudor period which was so pivotal in England's storied history. This book was published with the kind permission of Roger Lockyer, with deference to The Folio Society of London.
