    King Henry VIII took the throne.

    King Henry VIII took the throne.
    Henry Tudor was born on June 28, 1491 in Greenwich Palace. Since he was the second son, not expected to become King, we don't know much about him until the death of his brother, Aurthur who left behind his wife Catherine. She signed a treaty that she would marry the next heir to the throne, Prince Henry. The marriage did not occur because Henry's father had been slow to pay his part and her parents were refusing to pay their portion. This continued until Henry VII died and Henry VIII emerged.

    King Edward took the throne
    King Edward was just 10 when he initially took the throne because King Henry died. Protestants were happy that he took the throne because it left power with Gardiner and Bonner over the church, keeping England from Roman Catholicism. His uncle attempted to bribe him with money while Northumberland decided instead to put him up for full power at the age of 14, with all of the same responsibilities as King Henry. He was Northumberland's mask, there is barely any trace of what he did individually.
