By the time Henry VIII was sixteen, his father King Henry VII refused him a separate household and doled out pocket money to him.

Marriage to Anne Boleyn had prevented King Henry VIII from making a valuable foreign alliance by taking a French, Spanish or German princess as his wife.

It's doubtful that he would've been successful within those circles anyway. Not after the way how he ended his first marriage.

Spain was out anyway, since he treated Catherine like he did.

Would King Henry VIII have been successful with a marriage to an Austrian Archduchess?

Don't think so. Karl V. was Catherine nephew and the main enemy of Henry VIII at this time, not only because of his aunt, but you know for religious reasons. The Habsburgs were staunch Catholics no princess would've married a King, who had left the only true church.

Henry wasn't widowed: he wanted to get married specifically to Anne Boleyn.
Only after Anne, I believe he got desperate to have a son and heir and turned rather psychotic about it.
After all he did not choose any of the other wives for dynastic reasons.
Come to think of it, he did not choose any!! of his wives for dynastic reasons, only for himself - very modern, indeed...

Charles V was also King Charles (Carlos) I of Spain. As Catherine of Aragon's nephew, he would not want any of his sisters or daughters treated like Aunt Catherine.

Exactly. In fact there was only one ruler for Austria and Spain at this time. The lines separated only after Henry VIII. death, when Karl divided the Empire between his son Philipp and his brother Ferdinand.
