What a real douchebag looks like

So I’m closing in on the end of my beloved book The Children of Henry VIII. Mary is queen now, after John Dudley, the first Duke of Northumberland and a total douchebag, tried to take her out. He cried like a baby when he was arrested,  brought to the tower and, finally, sentenced to death. The punishment is so hilariously fitting for someone so wretched that I had to make a special post just to share it.

Hanging, drawing, quartering and having his heart cut from his body and thrown in his face.

Lucky for him, Mary commuted his sentence to a simple beheading.
