Henry VIII became the Royal Tyrant he is known as today.

At age 18 he inherited his brother Arthur's throne. And his brother's widow. Yet Obsessed with producing a male heir, He took six wives. Beheaded two,

And changed Church and State, forever.

But, what if Arthur had never taken ill? What is Prince Arthur of Wales, became King Arthur II of England?

So who will YOU be? The loyalist? The adventurer? The Rebel? Decide where your loyalty lies. And change Church and State, forever.

It's time to rewrite history. It's time to join King Arthur's Court.

It is the year 1520, and in England, things are drastically different from the way you know them to have been. Arthur Tudor, Prince of Wales, did not die of the sweats. Instead, Arthur is now King of all England. Henry, as the second son, did not become King, but instead became a member of the Church, as he originally trained to be. But as Henry grows jealous of his brother's kingdom, life becomes more dangerous for Arthur. Beheadings for treason are a norm in London, and many believe the King has gone mad with paranoia, fearing of foreign spies, threatening his life. But little does Arthur know that the threat does not come from France or Scotland, but right in his backyard. How far will Cardinal Henry go to become Henry VIII?
