Did Henry ever really hit Cromwell?

Probably! Henry VIII was known for his rages. In his book "Henry VIII: A Study in Kingship", Michael A R Graves says:-
"This is the man who also acted brutally to those around and near him and with total indifference to the public perception of him. He reputedly inflicted physical violence on Cromwell. On one occasion in 1535, as the Spanish Ambassador reported, "He the other day nearly murdered his own fool, a simple and innocent man, because he happened to speak well in his presence of the Queen and Princess and called the Concubine 'ribaude' and her daughter 'bastard'." p80
