Finding Henry - Reformation hero or villain

Henry VIII was not born to be King yet he acceded to the throne before his 18th birthday. Married six times: four times for love, once for affection and once for duty, he had three legitimate children. A Renaissance Prince when young, his divorces and subsequent order to send two of his wives to the executioner's block made him the most notorious King England has ever witnessed.
