Henry VIII was one of the most important, and infamous, British monarchs.
Most people know about his 6 wives, but how many of these things do you now about him?
1. Henry founded the Church of England
Well, sort of.
After his argument with Rome over his marriage to Catherine of Aragon he broke with the Catholic Church and aligned himself with the new Protestant religion (although he still claimed to be Catholic).
The new Protestant Church of England was formed (eventually) and made the official religion of England and Wales.
