A Brief Overview of Henry VIII

Henry VIII is well-known for his many wives and the way he treated them. The popular rhyme for school children to remember the order is: divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, outlived. However, looking into it, four of his marriages were annulled and he never actually gained divorces. The annulments also lead to questions over why two of his wives were beheaded.

The Reformation of Religion in England

Henry VIII is also known as the first head of the church, even though this is not technically true. Henry VIII declared that he was the head of the Church of England but this was never formally placed in an Act of Parliament. In fact, it was only Elizabeth I who managed to make an Act declare that she was the Supreme Governor of the Church of England; no Tudor monarch was made the Supreme Head of the Church of England.

Henry VIII tore the country apart as a way to divorce Catherine of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn. He initially went to the Pope for a divorce but this was denied. Arguably, had Catherine submitted to Henry’s will the reformation would never have happened. Had the religious reformation happened under different circumstances, arguably it would have been accepted by more of the country and there would not have been the burnings of a number of Catholics and Protestants over the decades that followed.

The Annulment of Marriages

Four of Henry’s marriages were annulled. Catherine of Aragon and Anne of Cleves are the two that are known about – although it is commonly referred to divorce and not annulment. However, the marriages to Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard were also annulled. This brings many questions such as whether the two should have been executed for their crimes – adultery and high treason.
