提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
When first built in 1515, Hampton Court Palace was the most imposing stately home in the entire country. It surpassed even the mansions of the wealthiest nobility. But its owner was a mere commoner, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the man who ran England. Nobles dominate Henry's court, but not Henry's government. The king has put a lowborn man in charge, a man who was once his personal priest. Thomas Wolsey, the son of a butcher, was an almoner in 1509. This is the guy who gives out all the alms to the poor outside the palace gates. Within 6 years, he is Lord Chancellor. How did he do it?

Young Henry hated governing.

He's there to go hunting, to joust. But he's never had, never did have an interesting in paperwork.

But young Henry had no interest in business, government, whatsoever. He found writing tedious and painful. He delegated everything away.

The churchman was beneficary of tasks through his way by the king. Wolsey proved a genius at finance and administration. So the king entrusted him with every gradual of authority.
