Which pope granted Henry VIII his marriage to Catherine of Aragon? Thanks so much.

due to the fact that Catharine had been wed to Henry's brother, the Church's canon law stipulated that a canonical impediment of affinity now existed between Henry and Catharine, meaning that they were seen as in some degree related, and a dispensation from the pope was needed before the marriage could proceed. Both parties petitioned the pope; Julius II granted the necessary dispensation on January 7, 1503. The proper ecclesiastical permission being obtained, Henry Tudor and Catharine of Aragon were betrothed on June 23, 1503, to be solemnized when Henry reached his majority
