King Henry VIII had a stairlift installed in the royal abode of Whitehall Palace, London. Noted in the records as 'a chair that goweth up and down' it was functioned by servants yanking at either end to haul Henry VIII up and downstairs.

With his girth/weight, that must have been quite a few strong services at either end.

When Henry VIII was King of England, the last of the monasteries to be dissolved was Waltham Abbey in Essex. Waltham Abbey was dissolved in March of 1540.

I might be wrong but if I remember correctly, Luther opposed the idea of priests or the Pope being the only source of divine knowledge, indulgences or otherwise "buying" your way into heaven and he advocated that the Bible being transcribed into languages other than Latin so that any man or woman could read and learn from it.  Henry wanted a divorce and the wealth that would come from the dissolution of the monasteries and abbeys - in addition to the power that would come from being both the head of church and state.

True.

I think you can say that Luther never wanted for the church to break up. He realized that some things were not going well (as Lievre said). He wanted to reform it. He didn't have the intention to make up a new religion. It just did in the end, because the authorities had no intention to change anything.

Henry VIII. on the other hand was were openly attacking the pope ans everyone, who stood in his way. His opinion counted and only his.

At the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries, 1.5 tons of gold, gilt and silver from the treasures of Buckfast Abbey were delivered to the Tower of London.

During the reign of King Edward VI, after he became Duke of Northumberland, John Dudley and his cronies plundered the monasteries and university libraries of their treasures. They grabbed royal estates worth 30,000 pounds a year.

Sherborne Abbey had been a Benedictine abbey church from 998 to 1539. The Benedictine foundation ended in the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539, when the abbey surrendered to King Henry VIII. Sir John Horsey sold the abbey to the people of Sherborne. They bought the building to be their parish church.

Throughout the proceedings leading to his divorce to Catherine of Aragon, King Henry VIII claimed not that his marriage to Catherine had broken down but that it had always been against divine law.

One of the lasting achievements of King Edward VI's reign was a prayerbook for the Anglican Church. The name of this prayerbook was Book of Common Prayer.

King Henry VII's mother was Margaret Beaufort. The Beauforts were excluded from the succession. So how strong was Henry VII's claim to the throne?
