Thomas More - the King's Good Servant
The Rainbow Story of Thomas More the King's Good Servant
Thomas More and William Shakespeare are the two greatest Englishmen who have ever lived, it is claimed. As Lord Chancellor of England, More was the most important man in the kingdom, consulted by the King, admired as a brilliant scholar, loved by his large family and countless friends. His home on the river at Chelsea - a village outside London in those days - was a magnet that attracted men and women from all walks of life. Yet he gave up all this when his own conscience and the will of the Kings clashed head on. Sir Thomas More was put to death as a traitor on Tower Hill on July 6th 1535, declaring that he died 'The King's Good Servant - but God's First'
