The WOTR was still a threat in H's memory, and succession was very important. In 1527 it had been 18 years since COA was last pregnant, she was 42. 1511- son H died, 1516, Mary born. COA had many miscarriages and still borns. The Previous Queen of England had not been since the 12th century, and H did not want this. In 1527 Champuys sent sensationalised account to HRE Charles V saying that H was in secret group with bishops and churchmen trying to arrange an illicit separation from COA. H blamed pope Julius II for allowing him to marry his brother's wife in 1511. H hoped the pope would annul the marriage on biblical grounds. H used Leviticus 20:21, Pope used Deuteronomy 20:25.
