The Pilgrimage of Grace (Signed by author Geoffrey Moorhouse)

£24.99

Product description

Protesting the king's betrayal of the "old" religion, his new taxes, and his threat to the rights of landowners, the poor and the powerful united against Henry VIII, raising an army of 40,000. Under the influence of the charismatic, heroic figure of Robert Aske, most of the Northern nobility joined the rebellion and gathered for battle at Doncaster where they would have outnumbered the king's soldiers by 4 to 1. But Aske was persuaded by the king's men to abandon military force and negotiate terms in London. Once there he was arrested, charged with treason and hanged in chains.
