Glossary of 5 key medieval terms. What makes a great leader? Henry VIII (28 June 1491 – 28 January 1547) was King of England from 21 April 1509 until his death. He was Lord, and later King, of Ireland, as well as continuing the nominal claim by the English monarchs to the Kingdom of France. Henry was the second monarch of the House of Tudor, succeeding his father, Henry VII. King Henry VIII is famous for his brutal treatment toward his whole family members, including his wives and children. For example, Loyal Catherine of Aragon was divorced by force, and Henry decided to execute Anne Boleyn and Catherine of Aragon for the sake of having a boy who can inherit his throne. His children were also famous for being omnipotent, including Queen Mary Tudor, Queen Elizabeth I and King Edward VI who continued the Tudor generations. Despite these brutal actions, Henry was able to accomplish many goals in various areas such as religion, politic, military, and of course, personal achievements. King Henry VIII was born into a royal family. He was the second son and so he was thought to be headed for the church. When his elder brother, Arthur, died 2nd April 1502, Henry was then destined for the throne. Henry VIII married more than the chosen one person. Henry VIII contradicted the Pope and became a Protestant, bringing Protestant-ism to England, as it was united to Catholicism prior. Henry was the presumed father of three monarchs of England, Mary, Elizabeth (the first Elizabeth) and Edward. He also introduced divorce. Henry VIII was born on 28th June 1491, became king when his father died on 21st April 1509 and reigned until his death on 28th January 1547. Henry VIII ruled all of England and Ireland. A little or a lot of each. Some people in the Tudor times had their own opinion, some people thought Henry viii was a villain because he meddled with the church and created the ‘church of England’ which he was the head of. He was instrumental in great changes in England and he made it a powerful country which was ruled very well. He is most often thought of as a villain though when we compare him to today’s standards. Though in England, Tudor time, he was a very knowledgeable man who prided himself on his knowledge of politics and poetry and he also had a great athletic ability so he was fit to be a king.

http://www.comparebusinessproducts.com/briefs/top-10-leadership-qualities How do today's leaders compare to Henry VIII? Modern leader King Henry VIII The three modern day leaders I chose were Barack Obama, Julia Gillard and her majesty the Queen. They all share these qualities:
•Integrity, is the integration of outward actions and inner values.
•Honest dealings.
•Magnanimity, means giving credit where it is due.
•Humility, they recognize that they are no better or worse than other members of the team.
•Openness, means being able to listen to new ideas.
I don’t believe that king Henry VIII was a king with great leadership qualities. But his most dominant characteristics were that he had a powerful and charismatic personality and he was able to bully people into doing what he wanted because of all the power he had.
