A statesman and scholar, Berners was made Chancellor of the Exchequer by Henry VIII in 1516. He assisted in negotiations for an alliance with Spain (1518), and attended Henry at his meeting with Francis I in France in 1520, a spectacular event known as the Field of Cloth of Gold. While Lord Deputy of Calais (1520–1526), he produced a translation of Jean Froissart's Chronicles which became extremely popular.
