King Henry VIII married Catherine of Aragon, the widow of his brother, after the death of his father, Henry VII. During their marriage, they had one healthy daughter, named Mary. She was the only child of theirs that survived infancy, as the others had died at birth, or at most seven weeks later. After years of trying to conceive another child, specifically a boy, Henry came to the realization that the now 41 year-old Catherine would not bear him any more children. It was known that Henry VIII took mistresses. The most significant mistress was Elizabeth Blount who bore a son named Henry. Blount was married off, making the son illegitimate, and incapable of becoming the king. Soon after, he took Mary Boleyn, daughter of Sir Thomas Boleyn, as
Anglican Henry VIII wanted a boy kid. But divorce was not allowed in the Catholic Church and if Henry got a divorce without the pope's permission he could be excommunicated or kicked out of the church. Henry asked the pope for a dispensation to get a divorce but the pope would not let him. So Henry asked the archbishop of Canterbury to let him have a divorce and the bishop had no choice but to. The pope was mad but Henry just used the opportunity to move away from the Church and to establish the Church of England.
Henry VIII (28th June 1941 – 28th January 1547), the second son of King Henry VII and Elizabeth York, requested that the Pope allow him to divorce his wife Catherine of Aragon after she had failed to produce a male heir and marry his mistress Anne Boleyn, however the Pop refused.

In 1509, Henry VIII of England married Catherine of Aragon. After birthing a daughter, doctors notified the couple that Catherine was unable to give birth again. Henry VIII wanted a male heir and was determined to get one. He plans to divorce Catherine, which was punishable by excommunication. The pope refused to grant him a divorce so Henry VIII made the Archbishop of Canterbury do so. This proceeded to break England from its Roman Catholic Church base, putting Henry VIII as the Supreme Head in 1554, making the pope powerless. This led to the Reformation. Martin Luther wrote the “Disputation on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences,” or “The 95 Theses,” in 1517. The documents started to doubt the Catholic Church. Martin Luther knew that the divorce of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon was illegal. He then spoke out against this. The effect of this was the Reformation.

But the King of Henry told the Catholic Church that they have already made him break a Catholic law which was that
