Sir Thomas Moore (1478 - 1535) - philosopher, author, lawyer - was counsellor to King Henry VIII in the early part of the 16th century. Like many of the royal wives, he ultimately lost his head - not for failure to produce a royal male heir (which would hardly be his fault), but for daring to remain steadfast to the Catholic church in refusing to acknowledge old Henry as the leader of the Church of England.   Henry stuck his head on a pike over London Bridge for a month.  What a bully. On a happier note, the Catholics later cannonised him as a saint.  Such a shame they're not around to enjoy it!
