38 years

Henry VIII (28 June 1491 - 28 January 1547) was King of England from 21 April 1509 until his death in 1547.
He ruled from 1509 to '47, a total of 38 years before his death at the age of 56, probably from syphilis.

He was succeeded by his son Edward VI, who was only a boy of 9 years old when he was crowned and did not play any role in the actual governance of the country due to his youth. He was really just a figurehead king, and the real decisions were made by a group of senior aristocrats who had been appointed his guardians and made up the 'Regency Council'.
37 years, 282 days from 21st April 1509- 28th January 1547
