Abstract

Thomas Cromwell left his mark on the English legal system with the introduction of various courts and legal reforms. In the 1530s, Cromwell took full advantage of his position at Henry VIII's court and used his legal mind to achieve Henry's goals. In the end, Cromwell's cleverness as a lawyer and zealous loyalty to Henry VIII impacted the history of England during the Reformation from both a legal and religious perspective. Unfortunately, the very same cleverness resulted in Cromwell being deprived of basic rights which led to his speedy downfall.
