Henry VIII was born a Catholic and raised a Catholic and has no intention of turning to Protestant. His major problem was that he only has one living heir to the throne and needed a male heir. Catherine of Aragon had only one daughter, Mary. She became too old to have more children, thus Henry VIII fell in love with Ann Boleyn. Ann refused to become his mistress unless they were married, so Henry decided that a divorce from Catherine was the best idea. In 1534 Henry declared himself head of the English church. Ann was already pregnant, and Henry was hoping it was a boy. Many of Henry’s countrymen followed him in his direction to take over the church. They liked it even more when Henry began to sell away the land which monasteries once stood. Edward VI (1547-53) became the heir to the throne. However, he later became ill and died at a very young age. The throne was then moved to Mary, and thus England went from a Protestant country back to a Catholic one.

    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.
