Catherine Brandon


Aske is hanged in chains. Henry learns that Pole is attacking him in writing from the safety of the French court and sends Bryan to arrest him but he has already fled. A reluctant Brandon is forced by the king to kill many innocents in Yorkshire as an example to scare would-be rebels. He is sickened at what he has been made to do and haunted by his victims. Jane is also sickened when she learns how Cromwell - and her husband - have benefited financially from the closure of the abbeys. Suitors are put forward for Mary, a Portuguese alliance being favoured. Jane gives birth to a son but dies shortly afterwards. Written by don @ minifie-1
