V. A. Put the following paragraphs in the correct order, filling in the grid under the text
(2x5=10 points)
a) James himself was killed in the battle. One thing was wrong with Henry and Catherine’s
marriage. Time was passing and they did not have a son. All their babies, except their
daughter, Mary, died a few weeks after they were born.
b) In the year 1509 Henry VIII became king of England. He was the son of Henry VII, a
king who was clever with people and careful with money. Unlike his father, Henry VIII
maintained a magnificent court and spent a lot of money on wars, from which England
had little to gain.
c) But the Pope did not agree to Henry’s divorce and this made him very angry. The king
decided to make himself head of the Church of England and as soon as this happened he
was free to divorce Catherine.
d) Two weeks before he was crowned, Henry married Catherine of Aragon. They were
happy together at first. She was a good wife and she was brave too. In 1513 while Henry
was fighting a battle in France, James IV, the Scottish king attacked England. Catherine
got an army together and the Scots were defeated.
e) Henry wanted to divorce Catherine and marry somebody else because he longed for a
son, an heir to the throne of England. As England was a Catholic country, he needed the
consent of the Pope in Rome.
