What were the consequences with Henry VIII breaking with rome?
Henry VIII (1491-1547) was king of England from 1509 to 1547. As a consequence of the Pope’s refusal to nullify his first marriage, Henry withdrew from the Roman Church and created the Church of England. Because of King Henry VIII, The Convocation of Canterbury met on the 12th April 1532 after its last session ended in March.
