"Leicester Abbey lit up. Wolsey died there."

 Cardinal Thomas Wolsey (c.1471-1530) was an English statesman and a cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. He was unfortunate enough to hold the office when King Henry VIII of England wanted to separate from his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. When Cardinal Wolsey could not find a way to permit this within the bounds of the Roman Catholic Church, Henry broke away from the Church and Wolsey fell from power. His offices and properties were stripped from him, and he might have lost his head as well if he hadn't fallen ill and died in Leicester.
