Thomas Cromwell: The King’s Collaborator
Tudor statesman, politician and reformer, Thomas Cromwell remains known in world history as one of the most powerful political figures during the turbulent times of early 16th century England. But who was the Earl of Essex really? In this film we look at Thomas Cromwell as he was; friend of a king, enemy of a queen and chief architect in the political and religious reformation of a country. Ambitious, determined, ingenious and deeply devoted in his aim to serve King Henry VIII with unwavering dedication, no matter what was commanded, Thomas Cromwell had his own agenda in mind for religion and politics, which made him the prefect architect for Henry VIII in the King's founding of the Church of England. From his humble beginnings in Putney to his rise to almost ultimate power as the King's Chief Minister, we follow Thomas Cromwell through his early years as Cardinal Wolsey's secretary, a post that could have tarnished his career, his connections with the first stirrings of Protestantism in Europe, his part in the demise and murder of Sir Thomas More, Bishop John Fisher and Queen Anne Boleyn, his legislation, parliamentary influence, law writing and finally his role in King Henry VIII's usurpation of the Catholic Church in England, leading to Cromwell's eventual position as King Henry VIII's chief minister where he reshaped a nation and was finally condemned by the king as a traitor. Our unique film production style has been internationally praised, especially for its presentation of facts, details and historical information as a fascinating way to learn about the notorious Thomas Cromwell.
