Henry's wives

Henry married six times; neither of his first two wives provided him with a male heir. He remarried primarily due to lust and the importance of having a male heir, probably in roughly equal weight. People say that Henry loved Jane Seymour more than any of his other wives, although she was probably just the next girl in line waiting to be given Henry's 'treatment'. Henry was a womaniser who would have an affair with any girl that he thought would bear a son. His wives are pictured on the next slide. The split with Rome

Henry broke with the Catholic Church for many reasons. One of these reasons was the inability of Pope Clement to annul Henry's marraige with Catherine of Aragon so he could go galavanting off with the younger, prettier, Anne Boleyn. Other reasons included the Church's power in England. The Church was a very rich and powerful organisation. Henry wanted the power and the riches from the churches in England to help his dwindling pot of money, which he had wasted on costly wars with France. Eventually Henry was made supreme ruler of the church in England and began the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538. The Dissolution of the monasteries

Henry VIII took his most famous step against the power of the church (in England) in 1538, when he began the Dissolution of the Monasteries. First the small, less powerful monasteries and chantries had their property confiscated and their buildings made unsuitable for use. They were followed the next year by the large monasteries. The monasteries were rich, and a lot of that wealth found its way to the royal treasury. Some of the monastery buildings were sold to wealthy men for use as country estates. Many others became sources of cheap building materials for local inhabitants. One of the results of the Dissolution of the Monasteries is that those who bought the old monastic lands were inclined to support Henry in his break with Rome, purely from self interest. Henry VIII was born in Greenwich on 28th June 1491, the son of King Henry the Seventh and Elizabeth of York. Their marriage ended the Wars of the Roses. He had an elder brother called Arthur, but he died in 1499 of tuberculosis and so when his father died in 1509 he became the next king. Henry died in 1547 aged 56.
