King Henry VIII married his brother's widow, Catherine and had a daughter named Mary with her. He wanted a son that Catherine could not give, so he asked for an annulment from the Pope, who would not give one. Anne was pregnant, so Henry got Parliament to declare the first marriage void, and secretly married Anne. The baby was a girl named Elizabeth. Henry's disagreement with the Pope led to the 1534 Act of Supremacy which made Henry, not the Pope, the head of the Church of England.
