      I hate when people completely ignore his perfectly understandable motivations like wanting a male heir. Just look at the previous wars of the roses if you need an explanation of why Henry number 8 was a bit obsessed with having a son or two.

        Which is why he seized half the lands in his country and used the funds for the military and secret police

        How does rotating out the women you are impregnating help with this? Surely he should have married all his wives at once instead of one at a time if that was his goal. What was he worried about? The pope excommunicating him?

          He was worried that those women would keep being infertile/birthing unhealthy kids or keep birthing daughters

      From 1509, when he became king at 17, to about 1528, things were fairly stable and smooth-running. Henry was the young buck king, interested mainly in manly sports like jousting when not actually planning or executing pointless wars against his neighbours.

      But he was gradually becoming more and more worried about Catherine’s inability to produce a male heir.This was known as the King’s Great Matter.

    Because he founded Capitalism by being the first national privatiser in Europe. So Marx was right that capitalism was founded by theft but a different theft.

    Because the 1500s never happened. Read Fomenko.

      The fall of Rome and Constantinople happened around the same time. At most there was 130 years between Rome and Constantinople. Everything pre renaissance happened before and during the fall. The Renaissance happened as it was collapsing and immediately after. The only other explanation is that the Vatican slowly released art and information. 1000 years is too long back then to have had that much of an impact on art. If they had our level of technology may be.

      Newton noted some inconsistencies with the astronomy, so even he knew they had fricked with the calendar more than just using a specific system.

      My guess is that there was a missing 130 or so years, but essentially the 400s + ~130 years was really immediately before the Renaissance. The 400s really being the 1400s with an additional 130 or so years. Meaning that 1776 was really about 500 years after the fall of Rome at most.

      It's entirely possible that it was a lot sooner. Rome fell 500-700 years ago.

    Henry VIII is pretty misunderstood tbh…

    >He cycled through wives
    Nah…His first wife he kept for 20+ years. Catherine of Aragon. Her parents are famous for sponsoring Columbus’ voyage. Her “problem” was that she kept miscarrying or having stillborns. Some historians think may be because she had anorexia. She lived at a time when women were judged pretty harshly on beauty standards. She’d religiously fast for days, even while pregnant. Basically self sabotaging herself. She did have a surviving daughter (Queen Mary). By then, Henry, who was in his 40-50s, had a crush on Anne Boylen, who was a teenager. He wanted her as an bride. Catherine’s nephew was the most powerful man in Europe (besides the Pope). He was Charles V, Emperor of Germany and Spain, etc. He basically told the Pope no way he’d ever consent to his aunt getting a divorce. Also, the Pope was his virtual prisoner. He literally kidnapped the Pope from Rome. The Pope (and even Martin Luther) tried to support Henry by saying it was fine if he was married to 2 women. Catherine could be Queen so Charles could be happy; Anne could be the baby-factory so Henry could be happy. Charles V got his way, and Henry officially broke off from the Catholic Church.

    >he is popular because he was a good king
    He was rather shitty. His father was an actual decent king.

    >He was an evil man who chopped people’s heads off
    Many people say he developed brain damage in all his tournaments he participated in. Keep in mind, these weren’t like modern day Renaissance Faire tournaments. These were like real medieval combat where people often died. Not to say he wasn’t kind of an butthole. Anne Boleyn was executed for treason (her whole family was treasonous tbh). Catherine of Aragon retired peacefully. Jane Seymour died naturally. Anne of Cleves was well taken care of and died of all age. Howard was an adulterous, maybe a beheading was a bit overboard. Her father was also treasonous. Parr retired peacefully.

      He was frivolous with money and tyrannical but not a bad king. Most of his actions were intended to make England a strong kingdom and the future mostly proved him right.

      Hilarious if true. Can only imagine what kind of consequences that precedent would cause

        It happened with Philip of Hesse and all it did was embarrass Luther and alienate a lot of Protestants
        cultural norms against bigamy were just too strong in 16th-century Europe for even the Bible to overturn them
