Six Roses, Red and White : A Tudor TL

Wolsey doesn't appear as smart as he is presented in historiography to be. Quarrels over Italy had almost nothing to do with empty title that is HRE and having said empty title isn't really going to help Henry in stopping wars over Italy.
You make a good point, now that I think about it. My perception had always been that it was Wolsey who was behind Henry’s transformation into the broker of peace by the late 1510s, and this was just an extension of that. I’ll consider changing this though.

Well, I wouldn't necessarily remove it if I were you, but if Wolsey really was as smart as he was credited with that words should've been just trying to prey on Henry's ego trip than serious political plan.
