Squires tell Henry, now king, about Martin Luther, a monk who is challenging the church.
Blasphemy! I must end this! Give me paper and ink!
King Henry wrote a book about how Martin Luther and his followers were traitorous and must be punished.
I LOVE this King Henry guy! I'll give him a title! How about "Defender of the Faith"
Congratulations! It's a girl!
Sorry to bother you, but, you know how the Bible says to not marry your brother's wife? I just realized that I did that. I'm wondering if we could undo the marriage or something?
Whatever. I'll be like that Luther guy and start my own church where you CAN divorce. The Church of England!
King Henry's second wife, Anne Boleyn, was executed. She didn't give him a son and Henry was the one cheating with his next wife, Jane, who gave him a weak son, Edward, and died in less than a month.
Anne's cheating on me. We need to have a trial.
His fourth wife, Anne of Cleves, got along with him after the divorce, and his next wife, Catherine Howard, was cousins with the first Anne and was also killed for treason. Catherine Parr was his last wife, and she was with the brother of his third wife, Jane Seymour, and she outlived Henry.
