  3. Henry VII • Won his kingship from Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field. • Rumors that Richard III was a hunchback were thought to be propaganda to promote Henry’s rule • When the skeleton of Richard III was discovered they found that he actually had Scholeosis.

  9. Martin Luther • German Monk • Upset by the Church’s policy of selling indulgences. • Wrote a letter to the bishop protesting the practice • Included in the letter his 95 thesis • Not looking to split the church just looking for reform.

  10. Religious Struggles • Henry VIII wrote a response to the 95 thesis called “In defense of the Seven Sacraments” • He also praised the position of the Pope as head of the church. • This earned him the title of Defender of the Faith from the Pope.

  11. Good King Henry • Popular King • Catholic King • Married happily to Katherine of Aragon for 16 years. • In short: “Everything was going hunky-dory…BUT…”

  12. Anne Boleyn • Needed a son • Fell for one of Katherine of Aragon’s ladies in waiting, Anne Boleyn. • Some say Henry wrote Greensleeves for Anne

  13. The King’s Great Matter • Henry demanded an annulment from the Pope • The Pope refused for several reasons - Henry implied that the pope did not have the right to grant the papal dispensation for him to marry Katherine. - Katherine’s Nephew, Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor had the Pope in his power.

  14. A Change of Faith • The pope, unwilling to make an enemy of Charles V and also wanting to appease Henry used political maneuvering in order to delay the decision. • Anne and Henry got more and more impatient. • Anne finally gave in to Henry and became Pregnant • Henry appointed Thomas Cranmer as archbishop. • Secret marriage between Anne and Henry without the pope’s consent. • Katherine was sent away where she eventually died.

  15. The Second Marriage • Marriage to Anne was unpopular • She did not give him a son but a daughter, Elizabeth. • Her strong personality was appealing as a mistress but not as a wife. • She did not look the other way when Henry had affairs with other women as Katherine had. • Two miscarriages, the second one a son.

  16. Jane Seymour • Henry was drawing closer to one of Anne Boleyn’s ladies in waiting, Jane Seymour. • The opposite of Anne in personality. • Wanted another annulment from Anne in order to marry Jane Seymour. • Members of his court looked for a reason to help rid him of Anne.

  19. Problems with the Accusations • Records show that the dates she supposedly had affairs with these men did not match where she actually was at the time based on court records. • Rumor has it her brother (accused with her) was actually homosexual. • If Henry got an annulment on the grounds that he had a relationship with her sister, which means that they were never truly married in the first place, how could Anne be accused of adultery?

  20. The Trails • Anne was imprisoned in the tower. • The men she was accused with were tried first. • Most, including her brother, were found guilty and executed by beheading • Anne’s trial was next but if the men were guilty so was she • Executed May 19th 1536 by a French Swordsman.
