  • The story of Henry VIII.

    10
    Wolsey, now the Bishop of York and living in relative poverty, is repudiated by Anne Boleyn and writes to Queen Katherine instead, trying to gain her support. Thomas More uses his new powers as Chancellor and starts actively persecuting prominent Lutherans. Henry finds his new Privy Counsillors less proficient than Wolsey was in running the country. He also starts finding elements much to his liking in the teachings of Luther, and dispatches Thomas Cromwell to various faculties of theology, hopefully to obtain favorable opinions regarding his intended divorce. Wolsey's secret communication with the Queen is uncovered and he is arrested and charged with high treason. He commits suicide en route to London. Anne Boleyn engages Henry in sexual encounter, but forces him to perform coitus interruptus.
