A young Henry VIII c. 1520 by an unknown artist
Henry became heir upon Arthur's death and would come to the throne in 1509. He was somewhat unprepared for the position, as it had been intended that he would pursue a clerical career and perhaps become Archbishop of Canterbury. This lack of preparation and education is seen in the heavy influence during the early years of Henry's reign of older statesmen such as Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, his grandmother Lady Margaret Beaufort and the queen Catherine of Aragon, his elder by five years.
