Episode Summary

EDIT
Lover (1526-1536)
AIRED:
Henry began to pursue Anne in early 1526. But when Anne refused to become his mistress, Henry conceived the idea of marrying her which required a Papal annulment of his marriage to Katherine. This ought not to have posed a problem for a king, but David Starkey's research in the Vatican Archives has revealed the real story of Henry's futile six-year struggle to get what he wanted from Clement VII. During this time, Henry began to re-think the nature of the English monarchy. He came to believe that he had spiritual as well as temporal powers: that the King, not the Pope, should rule the Church in England. The result was the break with Rome, a new wife for Henry, and a new religion for his subjects. But the marriage did not last long.moreless
