November 3, 1534

On November 3, 1534, the English parliament passed the Act of Supremacy and made Henry VIII, and all subsequent English monarchs, the Head of the Church of England, which effectively ended the Catholic Church’s power in Great Britain. One word of warning, the current English monarch, Queen Elizabeth, is still technically the Head of the Church of England, which puts her in the same glorified circle as the Pope, the Dalai Lama, and the Chief Noodling Prophet of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. So don’t tick her off as she is believed to have God’s ear and his nose.
