The Letter That Changed The Course Of British History-jiuyaogan

Henry VIII was created Prince of Wales after the death of his older brother Arthur, Prince of Wales. A special dispensation from Pope Julius II was necessary in order to allow him to marry his brother’s widow, Catherine of Aragon. However, Catherine, his first wife, failed to provide Henry a male heir to survive to adulthood. And by 1529 Catherine was deemed too old to have more children. Henry VIII’s greatest desire was to secure an annulment to his marriage so that he could marry Anne Boleyn and produce a male heir. When it was suggested to Catherine that she quietly retire to a nunnery she steadfastly refused. Henry VIII set his hopes of an annulment upon an appeal to Pope Clement VII. The Pope was at the time a prisoner of Catherine’s nephew, The Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, following the Sack of Rome in 1527, and this prevented him from annulling the marriage. This one page letter measuring 12.5 x 15.5 is written in Latin and dated January 18 1529. This historically significant correspondence represents Henry VIII’s attempt to advance his plans to annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragon in order to marry Anne Boleyn. Unable to make contact with The Pope, Henry VIII writes to Cardinal Benedetto de Accolti, the Bishop of Ravenna. Henry sends a re.mendation for his envoy Thomas Boleyn, Earl of Wiltshire (and curiously the father of Anne Boleyn) to be sent to represent him in discussions with Emperor Charles V. The letter is in very good condition, with professional repairs and reinforcement to intersecting folds on reverse, scattered light toning, minor edge wear, and a few small areas and pin holes of paper loss (primarily from ink erosion). The signature is extraordinarily bold and dark, and, given its age, the document is exceedingly bold for display. The basic message of this royal piece – heavily dressed in a formal tone – essentially sends the recipient the good wishes of His Royal Highness, expresses a desire for mutual co-operation between the two factions, and asks that note be taken of the ambassador he is sending – the father of Anne Boleyn. Under pressure from Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, The Pope’s inability to grant Henry VIII’s request for an annulment changed the History of England forever. In his quest to produce a male heir Henry reverted to Plan B. While he was still legally married to Catherine of Aragon Henry VIII married Anne Boleyn in secret on January 25, 1533. His marriage to Catherine was annuled by a special act of Parliament on May 23 of the same year. Following difficulties with Rome over his separation from Catherine, Henry split from the Roman Catholic Church, seized many of the Church’s assets, and formed the Anglican Church of England. Sweden, Denmark and Norway had already gone over to the Protestant side and with Henry VIII following suit this further diluted the power of the Roman Catholic Church. This remarkable document, and the refusal to grant the annulment requested, ultimately led to Henry VIII breaking from the Roman Catholic Church to form the Church of England. In 2009 we sold two Henry VIII signed documents. The first was dated 1533 requesting clothes for his Court musicians. In the second dated 1534 Henry wrote to the Keeper of the Great Wardrobe. Both items are incredible pieces of British History but neither .es close to being as important as this document. Content is everything with letters like this… This letter, written by Henry VIII, requesting an annulment from Catherine of Aragon is an incredible discovery. In an interview with the Associated Press in June 2009 David Starkey, a British Historian, TV presenter and Tudor expert, said: "It is an event of enormous magnitude, the most important event in English history," "This is the moment at which England ceases to be a normal European Catholic country and goes off on this strange path that leads it to the Atlantic, to the new world, to Protestantism, to Euro-skepticism." The Vatican Secret Archives hold a document measuring 3 foot x 6 foot, dated 1530, sent by members of England’s House of Lords to Pope Clement VII supporting the divorce from Catherine of Aragon. It is considered a crucial document in the King’s battle to divorce his first wife. It’s also the most expensive piece of merchandising in the Vatican. Copies of the document can be bought in the gift shop for 50,000 ($75,000). Not surprisingly the original is safely locked away and deemed priceless. What we are offering today is a totally unique item of greater importance. It is Henry VIII’s personal attempt to seek an annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon. Dated January 18 1529 and signed by Henry VIII. The Vatican’s refusal to annul the marriage led the King to reject the authority of the Pope and install himself as head of the Church of England. This is without doubt the most important Henry VIII document we have ever seen.
