It was clear from the beginning that the Pope would not grant Henry a dispensation to  divorce Catherine. Rather than submit to the wishes of Rome–after many failed efforts  by Wolsey and others to pressure the Pope–Henry chose to sidestep established  canonical procedure. Wolsey himself became the first victim of the King's anger, losing  his office as chancellor in August 1529 because he had failed in the negotiations with  Rome. Wolsey was replaced by Sir Thomas More, who took the job on the condition that  he not be involved in the divorce matter, and who would later prove a greater problem  for Henry than Wolsey. At this time the government was effectively in the hands of the  dukes of Norfolk, Suffolk, and Wiltshire, the last of whom was Anne Boleyn's father. .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
