[Homework]【整理】2015-09-30 PBS:走进亨利八世的宫廷-3

In this feudal age, society is rigidly structured.Class was everything at the court of Henry VIII, you were born to greatness, you did not work your way up.
The court is dominated by the noble landowning aristocracy.
As men of blue blood, they had the ability to be able to advise the king on heirs policy, and it was seen as their right, he maybe the monarch but equally they have a right to advise him a piece of close confidence and advices, they see Henry as one of their own effectively a first among equals.
But Henry VIII has different ideas, in his mind he has no equals.
He had an ego the size of a truck, for the first time in English history, here is a monarch who insists on them addressing him as no longer sir, it's your majesty, and that's symptomatic of the way his mind worked, he was more magnificent than anyone else around him.
Along side the ego lurks an aggressive insecurity, Henry is dangerous to know.
Henry had a natural paranoia, i think it's stemmed from that natural insecurity that all of the Tudors had about their rather shakey right to the throne of England.
