TRUTH !!
Thomas Cromwell (c. 1485-1540 AD) was the son of a blacksmith and grew up in
the Putney area in southwest London. Despite these unfavorable origins, he
played his cards right and, on the back of his sharp wits and willingness to
get his hands dirty, managed to rise to the position of Lord Great
Chamberlain and chief adviser to Henry VIII. Quite extraordinary in a time
where blue blood and titles meant everything for anyone wanting to get
ahead.
Alas, Cromwell's involvement in getting Henry VIII married to Anne of Cleves
cost him his head, literally. Henry VIII reportedly regretted losing his
minister soon afterwards.
