that's why I'd really like you to see what Hampton Court looks like :o)
In the beginning, Cardinal Wolsey was one of Henry VIII's favourites... but as he couldn't help accomplish the divorce between the King and Catherine of Aragon (his first wife) he fell from grace.
Henry's had his second wife executed for adultery : today, Anne Boleyn is said to be one of the ghosts in the palace, hence her haunting Hampton Court corridors.
who modernized Hampton Court from 1689 to 1702.
This photo highlights Hampton Court's huge size.
Nowadays it is open to the public and has become a major tourist attraction.
ca. = circa = about / approximately
(to) fall from grace = do something which makes people in authority stop liking you or admiring you
hence = that is the reason/explanation for located = situated
upstream = en amont d'un cours d'eau (stream = courant)
