Henry just told Catherine of Aragon he was going to get their marriage annulled. Henry said it was because Catherine did not give birth to a male.
I'm sorry Catherine I just need a boy!
I can't believe you right now Henry! All the things you've said about loving me forever must of not been true!
Later that day...
Henry went to talk to the church to get his marriage annulled. The Pope did not think this was a legitimate request so he did not annul it. Henry and Catherine appeared in court and got divorced, then Catherine got banned from the church.
I need a boy to rule my throne some day!
You can not go through with this! I will not annul it. You will probably just have to get divorced.
Henry also believed that the king is "the only Supreme Head in Earth of the Church of England." This lead to Henry splitting from the church, because the church did not agree. Then the Church of England was created.
I am going to make my own church, because you will not listen to my ideas of leading!
Ok. Whatever you were a pain to please anyways.
Henry said that the Pope does not have authority in England no more than any other bishop. In 1535, Henry closed the monasteries and took there property for the Anglican Church.
Yay! I have always wanted my very own church!
So Henry kicked Catherine out and quickly married Anne. Later that year Henry and Anne had a baby, it was a girl again. Henry was not pleased. After she had many miscarriages, Henry decided he did not want to be with Anne anymore. Anne eventually was beheaded.
There are no daughters of mine.
Wait Henry what if we have a girl?
I hate you Henry! How could you do this to our daughter.
Their was tons of people outside Henry's castle windows protesting against his changes in the Pilgrimage of Grace. This was the only time people threatened against Henry's power. About 30,000 people rebelled and around 200 people got executed.
