Diarmaid introduces his ground-breaking biography of the self-made statesman who married his son to King Henry VIII’s sister-in-law, reshaped Tudor England and Ireland, and sent the kingdom on a Protestant course for centuries. He examines the myths that have developed around Cromwell’s career and discusses the motivations behind his actions.
