Happy Birthday, Henry Tudor

Filed under: Holiday,Ponderings

Today is King Henry VIII’s 515th birthday. If you ask me, he doesn’t look a day over 480. :)

I’ve always been somewhat of a fan of his, my wife thinks it is because I was him in a past life, I don’t really know why, just that he’s always interested me. I think that he is a “misunderstood” king, somewhat like Richard III, whom I also like and have a poster of here in the office.

When I read that today was ol’ Hal’s birthday (I would have been able to tell you if you asked me, but it was still early and I hadn’t realized that it was the 28th) I got to thinking that since I was such a fan, I should seek out the Henry VIII Society and join up. I’m already a member of the Richard III society (which you can find here) so it seemed like a natural move.

To my surprise, there wasn’t one. At least there wasn’t one that I could find at 5am this morning, which granted isn’t saying much, but nonetheless…

So this weekend I’m going to do some research and find one, and if there isn’t one, I’m going to start it. Because he deserves a society, IMHO. :)
