Like a lot of people my perception of Eustace Chapuys had been formed from his portrayal in non fiction books and the tv series The Tudors however this book has completely knocked that on the headLauren s painstaking research shines through on each page as she strives to tell us about the man behind the often maligned name I found myself going I didn t know that as I read Bravo on such an incredible autobiography on a figure I now see as a brilliant diplomat for his time
