I love how he accused Anne Boleyn of incest, but completely ignored the fact that the entire royal bloodline was incest.

He not only accused her of incest, he also used the fact that he had slept with her sister before they got married to have their marriage annulled right before he had her killed which was considered incest at the time. So he accused himself of incest to get the annulment before killing her incest. And both of those things happened after he first got an annulment from his first wife by accusing himself of incest because he said that she had slept with his brother when she was married to him before his brother died.

Not-so fun fact: Henry was actually very attracted to Anne of Cleves. At some point, he dressed up as a peasant and tried to get with her. When he was rejected, he came up with the excuse of her being ugly because of his fragile ego. Henry basically killed Thomas Cromwell because his ego got hurt. Oof

Thomas Cromwell wasn’t executed because of Anne of Cleves, it’s actually quite the opposite. Shortly after the anullment Cromwell was awarded the title ‘Earl of Essex’ one of the most prestigious titles one could obtain in England for his contribution to the development of the Anglican Church. The real reason why he was executed is because Thomas Howard (The head of the catholic faction and Duke of Norfolk) had convinced Henry to get rid of him due to his associations with extremist Protestant figures (such as Barnes and Zwingli)

"Henry was actually very attracted to Anne of Cleves. At some point, he dressed up as a peasant and tried to get with her." Well, no, that's only partly true. Henry dressed up as a peasant because of courtly love. He believed that he and Anne were destined to be together and therefore she would recognize him as her true love instantly. Understandably, he was angry that she didn't. When he finally saw her in person, he 'liked her not'.

Fun fact: Henry and Anne of Cleves gave up the relationship and became friends, Anne became an honorary member of the king's family and was known as the King's beloved sister. So this means she wasn't rejected but the fact that both didn't see the spark in their relationship, but I loved the fact that they became friends after their relationship. And Henry sent her a letter ending in: "Your loving brother, and friend." once his marriage with Anne was annulled. Anne was also invited to the Hampton Court for Christmas and proudly danced with Henry's new wife Katherine Howard (LONG LIVE THE QUEEN)

Actually, the current British royal family might be descended from him. Mary Boleyn (Anne Boleyn’s sister) was one of Henry’s mistresses. The Queen Mother (Queen Elizabeth the second mom) was a direct descdant of Mary Boleyn and Catherine Carey, meaning that Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, etc, are also all direct descendants of Mary Boleyn. Henry VII was thought to have fathered Catherine Carey and her brother William. If he did then the current royal family are his descendants. Not only for the reason that I mentioned but Princess Diana was also a direct descendant of Mary Boleyn, so William, Harry and their children are direct descendants of Mary Boleyn, and possibly Henry VIII through her too. 🙂

Fun fact: anne of cleves wasnt even ugly. Henry was interested in french literature at the time, where the handsome prince dresses as a peasant and the princess still falls in love with him. He tried pulling this move, and anne being rightfully disturbed, pushed him away. His ego was so bruised he attempted to put the blame on her. Even then, henry admitted years later he should have married her.

In part he didn't feel she was beautiful because back in those days the definition of beauty in English courts was whiteness of skin. So women literally stayed out of the sun or if they did go out in the sun covered themselves. Their skin was almost translucent in color. This wasn't true where Anne of cleves came from and so she might have had a slight and I mean ever so slight tan. This was a no-no back then. At least in England. Also, many books describe her as tall and swarthy. Meaning she wasn't a petite little girl with tiny little breasts. He commented about how they sagged. That's because they were larger. That was not considered beautiful back then. She was probably quite average in looks. But a few of these things made her not the beauty Norm.

Fun fact: When the English court realised that Catherine was definitely not going to give Henry a son, one of the solutions was to marry Henry's bastard, Henry Fitzroy, to Mary, thus solidifying his claim and putting a male Tudor on the throne. The Pope was seriously considering it, especially when Henry began to put a distance between himself and the church. Conveniently, Fitzroy got out of having to bang his sister by marrying another woman. Henry refused to let the two consummate and, when Fitzroy died, he cheated his sons wife out of her inheritance.

There's actually a lot more to Anne of Cleves. After Jane died, he needed another wive, but the reason why he didn't just search in England but went all the way to Germany for that, was because of the vulnerability of England. They separated from the church and with that, all Christian countries, so he didn't have the protection from Rome or Spain anymore. He needed an alliance with a protestant country to ensure his safety again and there was Anne of Cleve's. Germany was a protestant country at the time. When she got shipped over and first entered court, Henry was very excited about seeing this new woman. He grew up reading these love novels where the love interest is a poor boy sneaking into a rich woman's room at night and makes love to her. That was exactly how he wanted to seduce her, but she, of course, didn't know those stories as she had completely different books growing up. She just saw him as someone who didn't belong in the castle and was trying to harass her. Henry took that as rejection and felt insulted and humiliated by her rejection. Thats the reason why he broke it off. Because she failed to recognise him in disguise

She was, in fact, the "winner" of all the wives. She took heed of his past, granted him his divorce without any question or gripe. She then was welcomed to his court, thought of as his sister, and got plenty of lands and money in the divorce. She lived a happy life and done just exactly what she pleased. She was wonderful and I am glad that he didn't want to stay married to her. If he had, she probably would have died far earlier. Without a head, too

Y'all he said Henry VII not Henry VIII. Henry 7th (dad of Henry 8th) was also the father of Margaret, Queen of Scotland. Margaret was the double grandmother of Mary, Queen of Scots and her second husband, Lord Darnley. Their was son was James VI of Scotland, who succeeded Elizabeth I after she died. So even though the male line of the House of Tudor died with Lizzie, it still survives through the female line.

Fun Fact: Holbein was known for painting accurate portraits, so Anna's portrait would've been closer to what she actually looked like. Henry actually dressed up as a peasant, barged in on her, and kissed her. Anna, knowing nothing about Henry in the first place, was disgusted and confused. Henry, who didn't like how she reacted, came up with the excuse of "She's just ugly" and let her live a fabulous life. He actually wished he had kept his marriage with her later in life.

18:54 When Oversimplified says A.B insulted Henry's manhood, I immediately wanted to know if it was true. I then asked my professor at Rutgers who specializes in English history of the period. He told me that there was no credible account of such but, most likely the video refers to the charges of adultery brought upon A. Boleyn. She was accused of multiple cases of adultery, the most notable being her own brother who was confirmed to constantly visit her chambers. The accusations stemmed from her own friend and maiden revealing the secrets of who visited her. Thus one could say that she assaulted his manhood by cheating. However, Henry was in an adulterous affair with other woman--one being Anne Boleyn's maiden. (Henry loves to boink his wife's friends)

So, Nobody really knows. There are also historians that state she did not have affairs. What we know is that Anne was very intelligent and into religious reform. She was “beautiful” and very witty. Many believe that she was “too” active in political and religious issues, which the King did not like, obviously. And with her not being able to hear him a son, and reports that her miscarriage was a boy, and he was disfigured, rumors occurred that she slept with others including her brother to cause the disfigurement. She herself stated she never had affairs, even in her last moments she denied affairs. And as you mentioned, a lady in waiting confirmed. But another lady in waiting actually said that George and Anne were in her chambers option playing games and talking. So, one of those, did she really? Or did he just want to get rid of her, and affairs were the easiest way to do it. Could you imagine the outrage to banish or kill her for being more intelligent? What’s interesting to note is quite a large population at the time we’re angry at her beheading, and even a family friend of Jane Seymour said Anne’s death was beautifully done, as she was extremely poised and her speech was poignant and supportive of the King.

I think it’s a similar situation to Anne of Cleves where Henry exaggerated her ugliness and all that. I do agree that Henry can’t talk about adultery when he went behind her back but that was life back then. I think Anne was just a receiver of bad fortune

Well, by being related to Henry VIII, you're also related to every other English monarch in history, including Elizabeth II and William the Conqueror

Fun fact: the Royal Asswiper was a very prestigious role, because the king trusted you in a moment of vulnerability.

As crazy as it sounds it really was a prestigious role for sure. Not many other servants got to have access to the king alone and in private on a regular basis. Perfect opportunity to develop friendship, have private discussions, and ask for/obtain favors from the king.

I never realized or noticed this before, but the background staircase at 14:56? That was not just any random location, but an actually pretty good cartoon version of the famous 'King's Staircase' at London's Kensington Palace. And that just like in the video, the painting at the upper floor really DOES show a balcony full of people looking down at you! Love this little attention to detail!

as seen in this paste king henry exploded in his coffin: As his body lay overnight at at Syon Monastery, the body of Henry VIII exploded in his coffin, spilling onto the floor. As luck would have it, some dogs were on hand to lick up the spilled remains of the once almighty powerful king of England. This event has also been tied to a prophesy that a friar once preached to him twelve years earlier.

@Conejito Rosada At this point we all know they launched what was basically a smear campaign against Anne of Cleves for Henry's sake. She was actually smart and pretty, but happened to not be attracted to old men. It's interesting that Henry pushed for the marriage in order to form an alliance with the Duke of Cleves. Than when he wanted to annul the marriage he had to ask Anne to consent to the annulment because he couldn't just kill the sister of a powerful ally. Anne was smart because she consented quickly and was given money and properties and received the title of being known as the king's beloved sister. She attended court and was well respected. She would live to see Henry's son Edward take the throne and die. Attend Mary's wedding and later her coronation. She was the last of his wives to die so she had the last laugh.

For anyone who wants to know, Thomas Cromwell aka St. Thomas More was one of King Henry's best friends for years and became the Lord Chancellor of England after Wolsey was fired. He refused to sign the oath stating that Henry was the head of the Church. He was martyred for his faith after spending forever in jail. Really cool guy.
