'King Henry VIII', c1538-1547, (c1900-1920). A print after a painting in the Royal Collection, Windsor Castle, from Art History and Literature Illustrations, by Jessie Noakes, Virtue and Co, (London, c1900-1920). Henry (1491-1547) succeeded his father, Henry VII, in 1509. Obsessed with passing the throne on to a male heir, he had six wives in the course of his reign, none of whom provided him with a son who survived. In divorcing his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, in 1533, Henry severed the English church from Rome.
