He would also arrest his father's two unpopular ministers, just two days after his coronation. Those men were Sir Richard Empson and Edmund Dudley. Charged with treason, they would be executed in 1510.
Henry's early days on the throne proved him to be a tough, able leader. He made decisions fast, refused to take "no" for an answer, and immediately set to work to create an England that would glorify him and his family name. Truly, his first year as king paints a pretty accurate picture for how the rest of his reign would play out. He would always be quite stubborn and hard-headed, but he would run into many problems as a result, as we know now.
Also remember, Henry VIII was a much different man at the time of his coronation, than how we typically remember him. Tall, lean, and light-colored, he was every inch the handsome young king that we might think of in fairytales (though we know Henry VIII was FAR from a fairytale king!) Thought to be the most handsome prince in Christendom, he was athletic and fun-loving, always jumping at the chance to joust or compete with his courtiers. Here was a man that everyone at court loved from the start - he was fun and his court was exciting. This was a promising start to Henry VIII's reign!
