  1. I can believe that Henry had osteomyelitis as the reports of his ulcerous legs, match all the symptoms. I myself had this at the age of three. I remember vividly, lying in my mother’s arms as we waited for an ambulance. I had screamed myself into an exhausted state. The early sixties remedy was to put the affected limb into a plaster cast and administer several injections of antibiotics a day. I was lucky to live in an age where there was a cure. The pain Henry must have been in would have been enough to make him more than a little cranky! No excuses for his behaviour but it would explain a lot on top of his possible brain injury received in his jousting accident in 1536. This is a very interesting article by Kyra Kramer – can’t wait for the others – thank you.
