ones religion was. So she made Anglican the national
church, and she didn’t bother anyone who practiced other
religions. She had no problem with other countries invading
because they all wanted to marry into the royal family. So

them. Two of them were beheaded and he divorced
another and a few died in child birth. He wanted a son to
be his aire but he only had one that was not all their and
died. Henries only other children were daughters. Marry
was the first to take over but she had died after being ruler
after a short while. Henry VIII created the Anglican church
so he could get a divorce without the Catholics church
permission. Henry made everyone take an oath to him as
head of the church. If they did not they would be killed.

to him. Henry begged and begged him to but he was a
strong Catholic. So Henry killed him like he said he would.

son, but he never had one. So henry ate, got fat and old,
