In 1514, Somerset may have believed his future would lie in France, in the household of Mary the French Queen, but her early widowhood sent him home again. In the 1520s and 1530s, he undertook several diplomatic excursions, including to the famous 1521 Diet of Worms, as well as military campaigns in France. Later, his movements were between London and Edinburgh, as he endeavoured to impose English control on Scotland.
