In the book "The Autobiography of Henry VIII"
(With notes by his Fool, Will Somers)
by: Margaret George
Which I must say is a GREAT book!!! I read that Henry often drank a dark green syrup as a relief of pain for his headaches and during the times with his ulcered leg.
1.What is the syrup? And what was the cause for his leg ulcer, was it from syphillis?
2.Did the Duke of Buckingham really start a rebellion against Henry and did he give him a clock for Christmas and Henry return it while the Duke was in prison? The movie series "The Tudors" showed this in one of their scenes, I know the show does not always hold historical value in its scenes.
