I shall have a name perpetual and fame permanent and immortal.
— Michael An Gof

Michael Joseph, better known as Michael An Gof, was a Cornish blacksmith who became a leader of the Cornish Rebellion of 1497. An Gof lived in St. Keverne, a village in the Lizard Peninsula of Cornwall. He was well known among the villagers for being a very outspoken critic of the English government and held much influence with them.

In 1496, King Henry VII levied heavy taxes on Cornwall, for he was preparing to launch a military campaign against the Scots, who supported a pretender. The Cornish were greatly upset by this, as previous kings had granted Cornwall exemptions from certain taxes. Along with lawyer Thomas Flamank, An Gof incited the peasants of Cornwall into an armed revolt against Henry.

Initially, about only six-thousand men strong, An Gof's army swelled in numbers as they marched towards London, and were even joined by some minor members of the nobility. However, after failing to gain any significant amount of supporters in the historically rebellious town of Kent, morale began to drop. Henry had been carefully watching the rebels' movements and decided to strike. He ordered the army meant for the Scottish campaign to march on the rebels.

Some minor inconclusive skirmishes occurred between the two armies. Despite the falling morale, An Gof's leadership kept the army together until they were soundly defeated by royal forces at the Battle of Deptford Bridge. An Gof fled the battlefield but was quickly found and captured. He was sentenced to death and was hanged, drawn, and quartered. His head was mounted on a pike at London Bridge.
