Did you guess that it was about King Henry the Eighth? A kenning is a good way to build up a picture of someone by using your skills of observation (or in this case, research!) It can make a good guessing game too if you build it up gradually. In this case, the person changed gradually from Prince to King, so it added another dimension to the kenning.
