"One good thing Henry VIII did was to make all of England Protestant which made ultimately create the United States. "

Pilgrimage of Grace - try this: http://www.spartacus...ilgrimgrace.htm - short and simple.

I think the thing about the PofG is that these poor people were simply protesting about the social side-effects of the closure of the monasteries, and the religious needs that were not being met - two things that we REQUIRE a government to take account of nowadays; that is what a modern government is there to do. This meant NOTHING to Henry, who tricked the people into going home by promising to think about things, then sent his army through the unprotected villages hanging 'rebels' in every place. I think you can say something about whether you think Henry was a 'great' king here.


Foreign policy: there is something here - http://www.pinkmonke...p1/e0101601.asp - if you scroll down to point 6b.

Much of henry's foreign policy in relation to France was because he was jealous of the French king Francis I - who ALSO was a handsome, strong, athletic, cultured Renaissance monarch. That is why Henry went to war - a war that he did not do very well in (and while he was away, his wife Katherine of Aragon organised the resisatnce to a Scottish invasion which, defeated at Flodden, saw the END of the Scottish threat once and for all). I think you can say something about whether you think Henry was a 'great' king here too!
