Desiring marriage to his mistress Anne Boleyn, and a subsequent male heir to the throne, King Henry VIII of England stood before the pope with a plea. He wanted to divorce his then wife Catherine of Aragon, who he had come to despise for failing to produce a male heir, and instead marry Anne. However, this request was met with adamant refusal by the pope, who deemed the divorce unholy as it was against the Catholic faith.

Henry would exhibit is ability to rule by not only winning the title as king in two countries, but also a wife who would realize a gender dynamic where the male was prominently in control, something people were wanting in real life with Queen Elizabeth. Katherine would simply be another one of Henry’s accomplishments. However, in light of today’s strong emphasis on feminism, Henry and Katherine’s wedding is not the happy, love story ending Shakespeare arguably intended. Henry’s beautiful wife turns into Henry’s war trophy. His so-called charm is threatening, and his need for her to openly admit her love for him, when he has, at that point, basically solidified his marriage to her, is creepily egotistical. Katherine never does promise to love him, for she, understandably, could not love her

Anne had convinced Henry, with the help of her uncle the Duke of Norfolk, that Wolsey was to blame for the failure and length of the proceedings. Anne wrote to Wolsey in 1534 stating, “I cannot comprehend, and the king still less, how your reverent lordship, after having allured us by so many fine promises about divorce, can have repented of your purpose, and how you could have done what you have, in order to hinder the consummation of it.” Now firmly at the Kings ear, the Boleyn faction were winning influence over Wolsey. The King was outraged and supposedly had exclaimed he would have given “a thousand Wolsey’s for one Anne Boleyn.” Wolsey’s reign and influence over Henry and his court was over. Wolsey was arrested on the charge of high treason in November and while travelling to the Tower of London he fell ill and died at Leicester Abbey. It is not known if the king had actually intended to execute Wolsey, J.J Scarisbrick declares, “Henry showed no sign of having learnt a lesson from Wolsey’s example…If anything, one might remark how little than how much, the cardinal taught his master.” It is said that Wolsey had the following to say on his deathbed, “If I had served God as diligently as I have done the King, he would not have given me over in my grey
