Tudor Humor: Cromwell and Henry VIII Cash in the Monasteries

Encouraging to see that Henry VIII's and Thomas Cromwell's destruction of the abbeys is receiving appropriate judgment in this "Horrible History" (thanks to Amy Welborn, who brought it to my attention!) Henry VIII wants to make lots of money for another war in France--"They've got loads of land that we can steal and sell to our friends!" Hey, did the producers of Horrible Histories read my article in OSV's The Catholic Answer Magazine?

Here's another funny one: Elizabeth I trying to find a suitor using on-line dating! Horrible Histories has a series of clips on the "Terrible Tudors"!
