Today's factoid (Wednesday 14th June):

Henry VIII did not have 6 wives. His divorce from his 'first' wife was not accepted by the pope, nor were his other 'marriages'.

If, however, you are not catholic and you accept those marriages as being real, he actually had more than 6 wives.

This is my field.

You know why the divorce wasn't accepted? huh? huh??

Because damn Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire had won the battle of Pavia in 1525, forcing the king of France to concede to the humiliating treaty of Madrid. The pope was obviously in Italy and due to the fact that Charles V was the nephew of Catherine of Aragon, he obviously didn't want her to be divorced and lose her influence. Alas, Wolsey was kicked out for failing to achieve his annulment. Thomas Cromwell came in and completely stole the show following Wolsey's death, due to the fact that he'd risen to prominence as Wolsey's secretary. He helped establish the Act of Supremacy which made Henry VIII head of the church in England in 1534 allowing him to divorce Catherine of Aragon. It was known as his "great matter", and lasted from 1528 to around the mid 1530s. The reason he wanted a divorce was because he believed that his brother King Arthur (who had previously been wed to Catherine by the treaty of medina del campo in 1589) had consummated the marriage. He actually probably didn't believe this but wanted to divorce her because he wanted Anne Boleyn, AND WANTED A SON, FOR WHICH HE THOUGHT CATHERINE OF ARAGON COULD NOT PROVIDE. So therefore, if my calculations have been done correctly, he actually had 23 wives.
