Week 6: More of Henry VIII

February 13, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

More of Henry VIII this week. We’ll be studying the reasons why Henry so desperately wanted an heir and why he married so many times.  Of course the most important factor in this section is Henry’s break from the Catholic Church and Rome. A very fun introduction can be found at the historystuff website.  Students should visit the portrait gallery, look at the section which interviews all the members of Henry’s family and then answer the questions which accompany the webpages. A further website which details the lives Henry VIII’s wives is this one by Tudor History. In order to obtain an overview of the period we are studying, it might also be a good idea to take a look at a timeline of Henry’s reign from the English Kings and Queens Timeline.
