Queen Elizabeth I’s father was King Henry VIII. He is famous for having six wives and for changing religion in England.
King Henry VIII’s first wife never had a son, so he wanted to divorce her and marry someone else. Divorce was not allowed by the Catholic Church so he created an independent Church of England. The country now became Protestant, not Catholic.
He divorced two of his wives, beheaded two more, one died in childbirth and the sixth outlived him.
