Why Was Charles Brandon Loved by Henry?

What was it about Charles Brandon that made even Henry unable to either kill him or permanently banish him from court? Brandon wasn't banished from court only once, it was more then that Im told. And I'm also told that hes the "only" supposed friend that remained by Henry's side.

So what was it? were they brothers? I know they're both not legit brothers but like did henry consider him a brother?

For starters he was handsome, rakish, macho, women fell for him in a big way much like they did Henry as a young man. Henry saw himself in Brandon, and loved him like a brother and boon companion.

Henry's favorite sister Mary was also passionately in love with him. So even though Henry was furious that Brandon had in effect committed treason by marrying Mary Tudor behind Henry's back, Henry was unable to retaliate due to his affection for both of them.

Charles befriended Harry before Harry became the Heir. Second, Charles' father had fought for Henry VII at Bosworth and died, so in return Henry VII raised Charles as his ward at the royal court. They bonded early and Charles showed his loyalty was to Harry time and time again, no matter what he was asked to do.

It was a combination of things. A previous poster mentioned that they were friends before Henry became heir... Since he was Henry's friend and not Arthur's, I'm sure that was important to him. He looked up to Brandon, as he was older, and then as Henry grew up Brandon used it to his advantage, letting Henry win but still being a good opponent. Charles Brandon knew how to be a courtier.
