Can you see him perhaps in a Tudor version of 'Big Brother?'

Who would be the last one to leave the house? And how would the others be disposed of?

Makes your blood run cold just thinking about it.

Heh.  I could definitely see that, although I'd probably have to hide my eyes a lot due to squeamishness about bloodshed.

What a great topic!

To me 21st century Henry would be a famous musician/chef with  posh gourmet restaurants all over the world.  I can also see him as a professional soldier.  Maybe an admiral in HM or the US Navy (since he loved the sea).  Yep, Admiral Henry Tudor, a member of the US Joint Cheifs…  He'd have to keep all of his philandering on the down low.  He also had a command of languages and was incredibly charming:  Diplomatic Corps.  Possibly UK Ambassador to the USA?

I believe that Henry would be a passionate man who cared for his beloved England and the United Kingdom, his life would be born under the gaze of Windsor Castle where he would grow up and work in the area. 

Due to his duty to serve and being a man of the people, Henry would no doubt join the British Army when he was 21, and serve for the next 20 years in all the Operations of Theatre in which he was sent.

Towards the end of his career he would after three failed marriages, meet a woman of his dreams, long curly black hair and an intelligent mind to challenge his, with a connection that runs so deep between them that is beyond words and they declare their love for each other on the 19th May.

During this time, he would become interested and study Law for a degree and a new career in that field, where he would excel and protect the weak and vulnerable and learn to serve the people.

No doubt that this will lead him into the world of politics as he would be disgusted in how the country he loves so passionately in falling in ruin around him, so he could give back to the people – liberties, speech and the end of the survelliance state.

Why do I believe this, well firstly he wouldn't have had the jousting accidents that gave him medical issues and affected his state of mind, though no doubt he would have a weak left leg due to injuries sustanined whilst serving.

Just a thought, don't write Henry off and condem him for what he did during the Tudor times, many others have done worse and even in these modern times continue to do so.

Written with the hand of him that was, is, and shall be yours by his will.
