|Significance||Henry VIII reigned as King of England from 1509 until his death in 1547. He married Catherine of Aragon, his brother's widow, in 1509. Because she was unable to produce a male heir, he sought an annullment from Pope Clement VII which was refused. Thus, in 1534 the Act of Supremacy declared Henry the Supreme Head of the Church in England.|
