Why Did Henry VIII Broke from Rome?

Answer

Henry VIII broke from Rome because Clement VII had refused to sanction the annulment of the marriage between Henry and Catherine of Aragon. Henry wanted to do this in order to be able to marry Ann Boleyn. This led to the separation of the papal authority and the Church of England.

Henry viii broke with Rome because he had fallen in love with Anne Boleyn and he thus needed the pope to grant him a divorce from his current wife Catherine of Aragon. Catherine was Henry's late brother's wife. The pope would not grant him the divorce so Henry threw out the pope office and got away with his wish of marrying Anne.
