Sir Loyal Heart

Henry VIII had chosen the nickname "Sir Loyal Heart" for himself and when he participated in tournaments and jousts, he would go under this name. He invented this name for himself during his marriage to Catherine of Aragon - how ironic it must have been for the people at court to see "Sir Loyal Heart" first abandon one innocent wife and then behead another!
