Chapter 27 summary It was expected that the influence which Luther left in England would remain, but King Henry VIII who reigned until his death in 1547, was a bitter enemy of the reformed faith. He had no love to the Protestant doctrine and worship. He had received permission from the pope to marry Catherine of Aragon after the death of her previous husband, Henry’s brother. But, his love for her decreased as she failed to give birth to a living son for the heir to the kingdom. Henry asked the Pope to declare that the papal permission given him to marry Catherine was contrary to the law of God and that he wasn’t truly married to her, but the pope wouldn’t give in.
Creon’s tragic flaw is that he is to prideful. Creon insists on killing Antigone because she disobeyed his decree. When Haimon questions his decision, Creon replies by saying,” I’ll have no dealing with law breakers” (792, 35-36). Creon is explaining to Haimon that he will not deal with any rule breakers and that Antigone will be put to die along with her traitor of a brother. Creon’s pride is what leads to the death of Haimon, his son, and the Queen, his wife.
Henry was starting to get annoyed because Catherine was not giving him a son. He was cheating on Catherine with a few other girls and did get a son with one of his girlfriends but because they were not married the son was illegitimate and he could not become King. Henry was planning to get a divorce then in 1503 so he asked his Cardinal, Thomas Wolsey – his adviser and close friend to arrange it. Catherine kept refusing. Henry wanted to divorce Catherine and marry the 20-year-old daughter of the Earl of Wiltshire, Anne Boleyn.
Goneril and Regan pledge their love for their father, while Cordelia refuses to speak and when probed finally states that she cannot “heave her heart into her mouth,” (Act I p.7 96-97) that she loves him exactly as much as a daughter should love her father, and that her sisters wouldn’t have husbands if they loved their father as much as they claim. An enraged Lear disowns Cordelia and splits her share of the kingdom between the remaining two sisters. This is a prime example of the beginning of destruction across familial, personal and social aspects. Lear pits his daughters against one another in a selfish endeavour to boost his own pride, but in doing this he also destroys a very crucial aspect within the monarchy by removing the one daughter who has not saught out to destroy him and the foundation he had built for his kingdom. In disowning Cordelia this breaks the natural order of things because in doing so he has severed the natural bond that a father and daughter share, as well he has personally destructed himself with this decision because he has given up on his favoured daughter.
The popehad even rewarded Henry with the title Defender of the Faith. Henry took thedecision to leave the Catholic Church because he needed a male heir.

But when he arrived in Spain the infanta hated him. She refused to marry a non-catholic. To marry her he had to stay one year in Spain and to become catholic. It was considered as an insult in England. Charles came back to England and fully suported Parliament.
Justinian, terrified and his officials, unable to control the crowd prepared to flee, but Theodora basically told them to stay and hold their ground. "Every man must sooner or later die; and how could and Emperor ever allow himself to be a fugitive? When you reach safety, will you not regret that you did not choose death in preference? I stand by the saying: the purple is the noblest winding-sheet.” Which means it is better to die an emperor than flee! Also, purple was the color reserved for emperors.
Romeo never got the letter saying that she took the medicine. He only found out that she was dead. Friar Lawrence promises to mail a letter to Romeo. “ I’ll send a friar with speed / To Mantua, with my letters to thy lord,”( Friar Lawrence 4.1 124-125) But later we see that Romeo never got the letter. “ I could not send it, here it is again / Nor get a messenger to bring it thee,” ( Friar John 5.2 14-15) Friar Lawrence should have took the letter him self if he wanted it to be sent.
