Episode Summary

EDIT
King Henry the Eighth
AIRED:
This is the story of King Henry VIII, who broke his country's links with Rome and set himself up as head of the Church of England, abolishing England's monasteries and nunneries and seizing their wealth. Meanwhile, he ran through six wives in his ambition for sons to carry on the Tudor line. Shakespeare was rather kind to Henry - no doubt because he was the father of England's reigning Queen, Elizabeth I.moreless
