02. A Tale of two Churches

Henry VIII by Hans Holbien
Henry VIII takes exception to The Vatican not allowing him to get divorced so does what any self respecting supreme leader would do, he creates his own Church.  This is probably the most seismic event in European history and fundamentally changed the relationship between the King, the Church and the State.  The episode runs right up the Charles I and the roots of the English Civil War.
