This week, we look at the Big A. Annulment. There is a narrative that Henry was doing something really outrageous when he wanted to end his marriage to Katherine. When instead, he was actually doing something pretty normal. This week we look at divorce and annulments in Medieval England to show that what Henry was asking for was actually something that was very common, and what made it such a big deal was how much it was fought against, and that he didn't get what he was asking for.
