Magnet pictures Reginald Pole (1500-1558), one time chancellor of Oxford and Cambridge universities and the last Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury. Pole was exiled for refusing to support Henry VIII in his campaign to divorce Catherine of Aragon. After Henry's death, Mary I brought Pole back to court as her chief minister and adviser in her determination to rid England of Protestantism. Though in poor health, Pole remained by her side during the horrific heresy burnings and succumbed to his illness within hours of Mary's death.
