Henry viii

Henry VIII

  • Became King in April, 1509

  • Married his brother’s wife, Catherine of Aragon (said it was his father’s dying wish)

  • King Henry was determined to have an heir to the throne, a son.

Henry VIII Continued…

  • He tried to divorce Catherine because of inability to have a son (and because he had fallen in love with Anne Boleyn).

  • The Catholic Church refused to grant this.

  • Henry breaks England from the Catholic Church AND declares himself the head of the Church of England.

  • Marries Anne Boleyn.

  • Anne Boleyn has a child: A girl, Elizabeth.

  • She was also unable to bear King Henry a son.

  • Henry then marries Jane Seymore. He loves her and she DOES bare him a son, Edward.

  • She dies in childbirth


Henry viii2

Henry VIII

  • Henry is devastated by Jane’s death, yet feels the need to marry again.

  • A political marriage is arranged with Anne of Cleves. Henry finds her ugly, and has the marriage annulled. Although, they end up becoming very good friends.

  • Henry then becomes infatuated with the young and beautiful Catherine Howard, who is also beheaded for having an affair. She bore him no children (by this time Henry is getting rather old).


Henry viii3

Henry VIII

  • Finally, King Henry VIII marries Katherine Parr. She remains his queen until he dies, but bares no children.

  • When King Henry dies, King Edward (who is 14 at the time) becomes King. He dies of tuberculosis and the throne passes to his oldest sister, Mary.
