Henry Howard the Poet Earl of Surrey

W. A. Sessions

Oxford University Press

At the end of his long chronicle, the early Tudor historian Edward Hall allows himself one last burst of Burgundian gloire. Although briefer than other extravagant renditions of honour that mark his history, his account of the August 1546 reception for the French Admiral subtly completes his text that otherwise ends abruptly with the burning alive of Anne Askew and her companions in July, the beheading of Henry Howard in the following January, and the death of Henry VIII a week later. Arriving in the Thames off Greenwich with twelve great ships, the Admiral of France Claude d'Annebault, the governor of Normandy, was first greeted and escorted to London by the queen's brother, the Earl of Essex, with the Earl of Derby.

Keywords:   Edward Hall, Anne Askew, Earl of Surrey, Henry VIII, Thames, Claude d'Annebault
