Storyline

In 1494 the opportunistic Sir William Stanleyis believed to be plotting against Henry and is sent to the Tower. He arrogantly boasts that it was his intervention at the Battle of Bosworth that cinched victory for the first Tudor king, but it's popularly believed that he did not join the attack until it was certain that Henry would be victorious. Stanley had initially fought with Richard III until switching sides, The victorious henry rewarded him with the title of Lord Chancellor. Although he is suspected of treason, there is no evidence against him as yet. Written by duke1029@aol.com
