Early Life and Education
Henry expanded Ottonian tradition of employing clergy as counterweights against secular nobles, centralizing imperial rule with gifts to the Church and new dioceses established, reforming monasticism through donations, as well as being an avid supporter of monastic reform and making vast donations of goods and wealth to it.
He only traveled south of the Alps three times during his reign, after expulsion of Margrave Arduin of Ivrea in 1004 and return to Rome in 1014 to claim imperial titles allowing the kingdom largely self-governed itself during this time period.
Henry was unstoppable with his strong will. Even marrying Katherine’s nephew – one who held much power across Europe and could influence the Pope – could not stop his progress; eventually the Pope could no longer stand in his way and Henry disbanded monasteries to gain their land and riches.
Henry Rome serves as deputy head of research and global macro politics director at Eurasia Group, the premier political risk consultancy. He has written extensively on US-Iran relations, Iranian security and economic policy as well as sanctions issues in publications like The New York Times, Foreign Affairs and The Washington Post.
He had written an influential book against Luther and in support of Catholicism, earning himself the hereditary title of Fidei Defensor (Defender of Faith). Henry kept their marriage hidden because Catherine, the King’s sister-in-law, could request recognition of its legitimacy from Rome if Catherine filed a formal appeal over their child’s birth.
Henry refused to support King Henry VIII’s break with Rome and resigned from his post of chancellor. Later that year he would be executed on Tower Hill.
Achievement and Honors
Henry was able to build an excellent financial legacy for his successors despite not producing an heir. Smart fiscal policies ensured the coffers remained full. Furthermore, Henry instituted Justices of the Peace and revived the Star Chamber to deal with overbearing nobles who maintained private armies which threatened the crown’s authority.
Breaking with Rome and dissolving monasteries were landmark events that shaped modern history, having an indelible mark on every aspect of modern living. He was known to be brutal towards his opponents – such as those who led reactionary Pilgrimage of Grace marches – as well as executioning thousands of individuals on spurious treason charges. Additionally, he championed environmental justice with great dedication; widely acknowledged as an influential and visionary leader who championed safe water supply and clean air for all.
Henry’s religious reforms caused great social unrest, which he suppressed brutally. Additionally, Henry was fearful that passing the Crown to another woman might result in a contested succession or domination by foreign powers.
By 1533, Catherine of Aragon had become infertile and Henry fell for Anne Boleyn; he asked Pope Clement VI for dissolution but was rejected.
Henry VIII’s subsequent break with Rome was commemorated with a series of statutes, culminating in the Act of Supremacy (1534). This act declared that Henry, second only to God Himself, was supreme over the Church of England and had complete authority.
Henry can often be found as a guest on CBS Radio’s “The Jim Rome Show,” earning an estimated annual income of $75 Million. Additionally, NBC Sports pays him about $20 Million each year for playing play-by-play duties at college football and basketball games which also generate a good annual income.
Henry VIII’s rupture with Rome and subsequent divorce from Catherine of Aragon and marriage to Anne Boleyn caused major political and religious upheavals. Henry also gained control of the Church, legislating that he was superior to Pope and redirecting all taxes formerly paid to Vatican to his Crown instead.
