- King Henry the VIII who reigned from 1509 to 1547 wished to divorce his wife who could not produce a male heir to his throne. #lame The pope would not allow him to do so. Henry's reaction to this was to eliminate all relations with the Roman church so as to make himself Supreme Head of the Anglican Church or an English #pope. #overreacting King Henry's later #successors ended up replacing Roman Catholic doctrines and rituals with #Protestant ones.
