<ul><li>King Henry was the second son and was not expected to become king. So we know very little of his childhood, until the death of his older brother Arthur, Prince of Wales. Henry was just shy of 18 years old when he became king, and had been preparing for it from the time of his older brother Arthur's death. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Shortly after Becoming King Henry took Catherine of Aragon as his bride on June 11 1509. His wife gave birth to their first child, a son named Henry named after his father, in January 1511. The child died two months later, and was destined to be the first of many unhappy births they suffered. Henry consoled himself by going to war against France, hoping to emulate his ancestors Edward III and Henry Vherine </li></ul>
<ul><li>He Tudor Governed while traveling the country side. </li></ul><ul><li>Thomas cardinal Wolsey ruled the country while Henry the eight was away. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The early part of Henry's reign however, saw the young king invade France, defeat Scottish forces at the Battle of Foldden Field (in which James IV of Scotland was slain) and write a treatise denouncing Martin Luther's </li></ul><ul><li>Reformist ideals, for which the pope awarded Henry the title "Defender of the Faith". </li></ul>
<ul><li>Had two brother’s and two sisters. </li></ul><ul><li>Had 6 wife's. (Catherine of Aragon Divorced, Anne Boleyn Beheaded, Jane Seymour Died, Anne of Cleves Divorced, Catherine Howard Beheaded, Katherine Parr Survived) </li></ul><ul><li>His Children, Mary, who became Queen Mary I.

<ul><li>Henry died in January 28, 1547 at Whitehall in London and was buried at Windsor. He left behind three children. King Henry VIII was grossly overweight, and possibly suffered from both gout and syphilis. In his younger days however, he had been a very active man. He increased size from a jousting accident in 1536. He suffered a thigh wound which not only prevented him from taking exercise but which gradually became ulcerated and may have indirectly led to his death </li></ul>
