The problem with Henry was he was a hypocrite he slept with Anne Boylen sister so the same issues spoiled to them and in fact he made that argument when he tried to get an annullment.

I don't blame Catherine for fighting for her daughter got for her. As for Mary being this awful bloody thing she was no more bloody than her sister. Huge amounts of Catholics died under Elizabeth. Only 275 people died for heresy under her reign and heresy was often linked with rebellion. She herself said she did not want to compel. Bloody Mary is very much a case of winners writing history.

Why can't people remember that Mary reigned for 5 years and Elizabeth almost 50; so it says something that Mary killed so many in such a short amount of time compared to her sister.

In 1511 the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I made King Henry VIII a gift of the best suit of armor in Europe, from Germany, in honor of King Henry's prowess in jousting at tournaments.
