Portrait of a man thought to be Sir Francis Weston

3rd May 1536 was not a good day for Sir Francis Weston, gentleman of the privy chamber, talented lute player and sportsman. It was on this day in 1536 that he was implicated by the Queen’s own words in the Tower. Poor man! He was arrested the next day.

Also, on this day, a very shocked Archbishop Thomas Cranmer wrote to Henry VIII after hearing news of the Queen’s arrest.
