King Henry VIII of England (28 June 149128 January 1547) was King of England between 1509 until his death. He was the husband of Anne Boleyn, who is debated to have been either a witch or a squib. [1]


The name "Henry" comes from the Germanic name Heimirich which meant "home ruler", composed of the elements heim "home" and ric "power, ruler". It was later commonly spelled Heinrich, with the spelling altered due to the influence of other Germanic names like Haganrich, in which the first element is hagan "enclosure".
