King Henry VIII had six wives, and he had two of them beheaded. His first wife got off easy with a divorce. That divorce led to the Reformation in England?
Henry VIII wanted a son. He and his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, could not have one. In 1526, he fell in love with a woman named Anne Boleyn. He wanted to divorce Catherine, but he had to ask the pope to allow it. Pope Clement VII refused, so Henry decided he didn’t need the pope. He named himself ruler of all religious activity in England. He shut down the Catholic monasteries and took all their wealth for himself. He split away from the Catholic Church and Rome.
By the time Henry died, Bibles in England were in English, not Latin. When Queen Elizabeth I, his daughter, was crowned, England officially became a Protestant nation in 1559.
