About Sir Francis Bryan I "The Vicar of Hell", Lord Chief Justice of Ireland

Wikipedia: English

Sir Francis Bryan born about 1490, died 2 February 1550.

Sir Francis Bryan was an English courtier and diplomat during the reign of Henry VIII. He was Chief Gentleman of the Privy chamber and Lord Chief Justice of Ireland. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bryan always retained Henry's favour, achieving this by altering his opinions to conform to the king's. His lack of principle at the time of his cousin Anne Boleyn's downfall led to his earning the nickname "the Vicar of Hell"
