Two men in history, literature and fandom, united and divided by a king -- Henry Tudor:

Cardinal Thomas Wolsey and Sir Thomas More

One would be vilified by history, the other sainted. Both were probably misunderstood. This community celebrates our fascination with these two giants, the true victims of Henry Tudor's love for Anne Boleyn and break with the Catholic Church.

"Had I but served my God with half the zeal I served my king, he would not in mine age Have left me naked to mine enemies." -Wolsey in Shakespeare's King Henry VIII

"I die his majesty's good servant, but God's first." Sir Thomas More in "A Man for All Seasons"
