“I’m Henry the Eighth I am, ‘enry the Eighth I am, I am. I got married to the widow next door, she’d been married seven times before. And ev’ry one was an…” OK, we’ll stop there. Henry the Eighth is a historical figure, sure, but he’s also a man who’s spawned much entertainment potential. That unending song is probably the most easily recognizable example, but Henry the Eighth’s life has also inspired a new cable TV show on Showtime. Called “The Tudors,” this show follows a fictionalized-but-roughly-based-on-history account of Henry the Eighth’s younger years.
