Anthony Knivert as played by Callum Blue
| possibly died in 1512 (?) |
Fictional Character possibly based on a young English nobleman called Sir Thomas Knyvett or Knivert or Knevet who was a close associate of King Henry VIII shortly after he came to the throne. According to Hall's Chronicle Knyvett was a frequent participant in the jousts and pageants of the new king's glittering court.
When Henry declared war on France in 1512, Knyvett, along with Sir John Carew, was given command of the royal flagship, the Regent. With a number of court favourites commanding other vessels a small fleet set sail for the coast of Brittany. On August 10, 1512 they engaged a slightly larger French fleet, and a violent melee ensued. Knyvett's ship grappled with the French command vessel, and was engaged in boarding her when the French powder magazine blew up (some say it was deliberately ignited). The two vessels burst into flame. Knyvett and Carew both perished, along with the French captain and more than 1700 men, both French and English.
