This is a 22 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on British History - Key Figures - King Henry VIII. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
When Henry VII died in 1509, this popular 18 year-old prince, known for his love of hunting and dancing, became King Henry VIII. Soon after he obtained the papal dispensation required to allow him to marry his brother's widow, Catherine of Aragon
Well thought of, In 1521, Pope Leo X conferred the title of “Defender of the Faith” on Henry which affirmed the supremacy of the Pope in the face of the reforming ideals of the German theologian, Martin Luther. Henry VIII was also known as the 'father of the Royal Navy.' When he became king there were 5 royal warships. By the time of his death he had built up a navy of around 50 ships.
The thing that defined Henry more than anything else was his quest to produce a male who would inherit the throne of England, especially the lengths he would go to too accomplish that. When his wife Anne could not provide a male heir, he sought an annulment which the pope denied. When Henry XIII was excommunicated he established the Church of England with him self as the head.
Without intending to, he opened the door for radical reform of the existing Catholic Church. Which also help give rise to the protestant reformation.
