Henry was a good catholic at first and went to church 3 time per day. He even received an award from the pope called `Fidei Defensor` which meant Defender of Faith. Henry was so pleased that he put it on cions and you can still see it today on some coins. But later in life the pope excommunicated him from the church. When he demanded a devorce which was none to be impossible but did it anyway like the song Divorced beheaded died divorced beheaded survived!!!!!!!!!!! :)
