Wolsey's rise to power

Wolseys rise to power was a combination of both luck and skill

  • 1905: He became the royal almoner, this was the person that was in charge of giving out the Kings Alms (charity). 
  • 1914: Becomes Bishop of Tournai and of Lincoln, he is later on made the Archbishop of York
  • Sept 1515: He becomes Cardinal Wolsey, and later on in that year he becomes Lord Chancellor. Was a TURNING POINT!!
  • Was also appointed Legate a latere by the pope --> this gave him the authority to reform the church.
