The Diet, Death and Prophesy of King Henry VIII

The cruelest king of England had many things: power, wife, a lot of rolling heads, and food. The latter was a major source for the early death of the Tudor king. One thing the King did not like was that he had many years to live because in the last ten years he ate a large amount of food daily.

Before Henry became bloated, he was a model customer at Weight Watchers. However, after suffering severe injuries after a fatal accident, the young Henry became a vegetative leader, seated on his throne in London at his palace in Whitehall. In just one day, the king eats a shopping cart full of all kinds of meat available that keeps the chefs in the royal kitchen busy cooking. In addition, Henry ate two more shopping baskets that included plenty of bread, strawberries and many bottles of wine. He consumes about 5000 calories or more of food, eating eighteen times a day. Calculate the surprising number of calories in 365 days over 10 years.

Even though the king became very ill, nothing could stop his body from deteriorating. It is not surprising that he died in January 1547 at the age of 55 - a relatively young age. No one in the court heard the terms "diabetes" and "high blood pressure" but modern doctors have confirmed that the disease led to his death.

The next task involved the skeptics of the castle who cleaned and anointed Henry's 400-pound body before placing it in a lead coffin. The "big" question becomes how people can lift the body to the casket. Perhaps the fact that it took him two weeks for his coffin to begin his march 22 miles from Westminster Abbey to Windsor Castle could give us a clue.

When the journey began, most of the people hated by the troupe hated the king. They saw the vicious coffin and hesitated to give it a joy that was truly respected. After eight miles carrying the coffin, the procession stopped for the night at Syon House, the country house. Although he was not invited there, those carrying the coffin stayed the night. The next day, when the troupe came to retrieve Henry's coffin, they immediately saw the stench and the sides of the casket extended. Underneath there is a lot of blood and pus. Henry's body has exploded.

A plumber has been called in to repair a coffin that evokes the stench of Henry's decaying corpse. When the casket was raised, a dog wandered into the room and began to lick blood. Even if they try to catch up to him, he stays.

What raised the hair was not Henry's body odor, but the presence of the dog. Years ago when Henry and one of his predecessors - Ann Boleyn attended in public, a priest named William Peto dared to give a sermon, comparing Henry to "King Ahab" who had married "Jezebel" (Ann Boleyn) Baal "(Satan). Peto prophesied that since Henry continued his course, his body would suffer the same fate as Ahab and his" wild dogs licked his blood "(1 Kings 22:38).

Henry and Ann should pay close attention to Peto's sermon carefully. When Henry's first wife, Catherine of Aragon, could not give her a male heir, she pleased Ann Boleyn. Henry divorced Catherine, who was a Roman Catholic and married Ann Boleyn, who consciously persuaded him to convert and forced England to convert to Protestantism.

Henry is probably the worst king he ever lived. He was hated by his subjects because of the legal and political consequences of divorcing his five wives who could not give him a male heir to take his place as king. Eventually, he was reduced to a 400-pound dead body and the only one who liked it was a dog.
