Description: When the well known and well liked British statesman Sir Thomas More decides not to pressure the Pope into annulling the marriage of King Henry VIII and his Spanish wife, More’s confrontations with the monarch increase in severity. Being a devout Catholic, More stands by his religious views and moves to leave the royal court. Sadly, the King and his men aren’t satisfied by this, and press forward with charges of treason, further testing More’s will.
