Henry the VIII was probably best known for his 6 wives and being over 400 pounds when he died but there's much more to him than that. Henry received great education from the finest tutors in Europe. He could speak fluent Latin and French. He was a very smart man. He wasn't expected to take over the throne but when his brother Arthur died he was next in line. While Henry was king he separated the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church in 1534, using the Act of Supremacy to declare himself the head of the Church of England.

Meeting Castigliones requirements

In my opinion Henry really didn't meat the requirements. He was a very mean man and didn't have the characteristics of a well rounded person.

Henry the 8th was a very well educated man. He was taught by the best tutors in Europe. He knew history very well but wasn't well mannered in my opinion. He owned many instruments but didn't play many. He was obviously not very athletic because we liked to eat a lot of food and weighed around 400 pounds. In my opinion Henry didn't really meat Castiglione's requirements he was not very kind he had some of his wives killed just because they didn't produce a boy for him.
