  • Chivalric Imagery In Peter C. Herman's Henry IV

    Peter C. Herman who has a PHD in English and comparative literature, starts off his essay by explaining the transition of the power from Henry VII to Henry VIII. Herman, as described throughout his essay to the readers, describes Henry VIII implementation of chivalric imagery to be a successful king over his father’s idea of leaving the court the same. I agree with Herman’s suggestion, that Henry VIII implementing of Chivalric Imagery is what made him a better king than his father as ill discuss in depth.

Henry decided that the court be ran as it had previously before so he could gain popular consent of the court and its people. After gaining the favor of the people and receiving the crown, the rest of his reign as Henry the VII rested upon keeping parliament the same.
