The inside story of Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon.
 
It's 1527 and Henry, desperate to marry Anne Boleyn and ensure the Tudor line does the unthinkable and asks Pope Clement VII to grant him a divorce. Enter a wily Italian diplomat named Gregorio Casali, hired to represent Henry's interests in the Vatican. Through six years of cajoling, threats and bribery, Casali lives by his wits, playing off one powerful patron against another, negotiating with ambassadors from Spain, France and beyond, each crowding the Vatican to press their interests in the Tudor break up. Before it is done, Henry will decide to divorce not just Catherine, but the Church itself. Set against the backdrop of war-torn Renaissance Italy, The Divorce of Henry VIII combines a gripping family saga with a highly charged political battle between the Tudors and the Vatican to reveal the extraordinary true story behind history's most infamous divorce.
