I King Henry VIII was born on the 28th of June during the year of 1491 at Greenwich England I am the second son of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York I originally had 6 brothers and sisters But only 4 of us survived including myself My older brother Prince Arthur and my two sisters Margaret and Mary When I was a child I loved to learn I learned about everything I could possibly be taught Others would call me spoiled because I had my own whipping boy who got whipped for me when I did something wrong But I do not see that as being spoiled I see it as being better My older brother Arthur was heir to the throne therefore my father saw no reason to teach me how to rule a country So I was educated to become a churchman But when I was age 11 Prince Arthur died making me heir to the throne In my youth I was highly athletic and intelligent I was bilingual including the languages French Latin and Spanish My favorite sport was hunting I also very much enjoyed tennis In 1509 when I was 18 years old my father died making me King Henry VIII of England Then I was over 6 feet tall slender and had golden hair But before I was crowned I married Catherine of Aragon Catherine of Aragon was 6 years older than me at the age of 24 She was my brothers widow I wanted to make it clear that I would be my own master I did not want anyone telling me what to do I wanted to do things my way When I became king I was much more interested in renovating my court and surrounding myself with scholars and artists I love music and the arts I had my own personal band that I hired to take with me everywhere In my days of being a king
