Many possible brides were hesitant to marry Henry VIII, a man notorious for his treatment of previous wives. Because no woman emerged as the obvious choice, Thomas Cromwell's assessment of the religious and political pressures of the late 1530s led him to suggest one of the two daughters of the safely Protestant Duke of Cleves as a prospective bride.

For scholars, however, this would be a starting point rather than a definitive guide.
