Storyline

Henry could not divorce Catherine under Catholic law. With Anne's help, he broke from Rome. He felt the bible should be read by all, in English, not Latin, and that he was the God's voice on earth, not the Pope. He got his divorce and married his mistress Anne. She hated the friendship he had with Thomas Cromwell, and pushed to break it up. Thomas was clever, he told the king she was having many affairs, even with her own brother. The Church of England was born, and Anne Boleyn was dead. Written by Britstuff
