When a royal marriage breaks down, everyone has to take sides. There´s no hiding place. The king wanted a son and the country needed an heir.

Why did Henry want an annulment to his marriage to Catherine of Aragon? This podcast examines Anne Boleyn, lust and power, succession and security. Glyn's key concept is "Imperial Kingship".
