Sir Francis Bryan : Henry VIII's Most Notorious Ambassador Paperback / softback
Sir Francis Bryan was Henry VIII's most notorious ambassador and one of his closest companions.
Bryan was a man of many talents; jouster, poet, rake and hell-raiser, gambler, soldier, sailor and diplomat.
He served his king throughout his life and unlike many of the other men who served Henry VIII, Bryan kept his head and outlived his sovereign.
This book tells the story of his life from coming to court at a young age through all his diplomatic duties to his final years in Ireland.
