Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/BringUpTheBodies'', Henry VIII loudly and publicly accuses Thomas Cromwell of attempting to turn him into a PuppetKing. It's not the first time Henry's been mad at him, but the level of rage and the particular accusation is enough to make Cromwell's head feel rather insecure on its shoulders. He just manages to withdraw by making a blacksmith's gesture that confuses Henry into shutting up, then immediately seeks out a goblet of wine.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/WolfHall'', Cromwell's attempt to reconcile Ambassador Chapuys with Henry ends in disaster. After Henry nearly punches Chapuys to the ground he turns on Cromwell and, in front of the court, accuses Cromwell of trying to turn him into a PuppetKing. Cromwell manages to withdraw intact by making a blacksmith's gesture that confuses the king, but the next scene has him sitting in a quiet room with a goblet of wine in his shaking hand.
