The Theme this week was....Henry VIII

4)The Pomegrante--This fruit was Katherine of Aragons totem.
5)The Conscience Print-- Henry often had a Case of having to appease his Conscience anytime things were not going his way.

*Interesting note
of Henrys 6 Wives only 2 to be Beheaded were cousins.
**While Henry DID break from Rome to create the Church of England he still practiced very much like a the Catholic. It does appear to many that he did not wish to stop being Catholic.. he merely wanted to have his way.

Thanks to ALL that played last week. This weeks game will be posted Tomorrow.
