In the new NGC special, Inside the Body of Henry VIII, a team of medical experts, biographers, and historians investigate what could have caused the great physical and mental changes that England’s most notorious monarch underwent during his reign.

As he grew older, the king transformed from a charming and athletic prince into a paranoid, obese despot. Was it from diseases such as syphilis, diabetes, or malaria? Or could his favorite sport, jousting, have sparked his medical problems?

The experts are taking a look inside to try and find the scientific truth behind this legendary man.
