Henry VIII was King of England from 1509 – 1547. He is seen by many as the first Renaissance Prince of the country and had an avid interest in the finer things in life such as art, stylish clothes, literature and music. He wrote a number of songs, the most famous of which was called “Pastime with Good Company” (also known as “The Kings Ballad”), a folk song that was popular in England as well as on the continent.
