* TheCaligula: Henry VIII by the play's end. He will not tolerate any criticism about Anne or his seperation from Rome. Any poor fool who does speak his mind will be charged with treason and have their head cut off.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Henry VIII does have Biblical basis for wanting a divorce: lying with your brothers widow is considered to be a sin, and he genuinely believes his lack of a male heir is God's punishment, and that the King of Spain and the Pope are keeping him in a state of sin for their own reasons.

Henry VIII was only able to marry his brother's widow because of a special dispensation granted by the Pope, but over time Henry came to believe the Pope never had the authority to do so.
