    Notes:

    Betrayer of Thomas More, torturer of Anne Askew, entrapper of John Fisher, suppressor of monasteries, destroyer of the Priory of St. Bartholomew-the-Great, Richard Rich was, correctly, called by Hugh Trevor-Roper a man "of whom nobody has ever spoken a good word." Naturally, he died in bed, rich and comfortable, and his descendants enjoyed their lives as wealthy and powerful aristocrats for over 300 years.

    In the movie The Man for All Seasons, Rich perjures himself against Thomas More in order to become Attorney-General for Wales. More responds, "Why, Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world...but for Wales?"
