About Henry VIII of England
Henry VIII of England was the second monarch of the royal Welsh and English Tudor Dynasty, succeeding his father Henry VII, who previously held the Lordship of Ireland before rising to Kingship. During his reign, he was most known for his disputes with the Pope that led to him separating the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church, although his faith was not affected by the excommunication.
Search for an Heir
Henry VIII firmly wanted to have a son to be his heir, believing a daughter won’t be up to the task. His search for the son led him to six marriages, and finally getting his son Edward VI with his third wife, Jane Seymour.
