The King's Man
by Judith Stoleson
At sixteen Robert Graves set off for London to serve newly-crowned Henry VIII. Life at court provided him with enough jousting to keep him fit, dicing and cards to keep him poor, and pretty maidens to keep him merry. For twenty-five years he gave his love and loyalty to his king until the beheadings began. These dark cruel times awoke Robert to what it really meant to be a King's Man.
