Dr David Starkey uses the Vatican archives to trace the Tudor king's relationship with Anne Boleyn, and the impact it had on religion and the English monarchy. Henry's six-year struggle to obtain a Papal annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon and wed Anne resulted in a break with Rome, but the couple's union ended in tragedy.
