Episode Summary

Tyrant (1533-1547)
The courtiers who had helped Cromwell dispatch Anne hoped that the Schism with Rome would now be healed. They were soon disabused. Henry was not going to let go of the power the Supremacy gave him. The destruction of the monasteries proceeded apace, with the loot flowing into Henry's coffers. Even the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge would have gone, had not Henry's third queen Jane Seymour interceded. But the orgy of iconoclasm provoked isolation abroad and rebellion at home. Henry's response showed him at his most duplicitous and ruthless. As Henry grew older, more ill, and more dangerous to all around him, he was busy forging a new English identity of a fiercely independent nation set at one remove from Europe.moreless
