What prompted Henry VIII to break with the Catholic Church and declare himself as the Head of the Church of England?
Catherine of Aragon's inability to produce a living male heir for Henry VIII had soured their relationship. Catherine was a staunch Roman Catholic and therefore was in good standing with the Pope. Henry VIII had become enamored with Anne Boleyn. He wrote to the Pope to request that his marriage to Catherine of Aragon be annulled. He wanted her to live out her days as a nun. When the Pope refused, Henry VIII founded the Church of England and declared himself the Supreme Head. He then had his marriage to Catherine of Aragon declared invalid and married Anne Boleyn.
