Cromwell was a statesman who rose to power as the right-hand man of Cardinal Wolsey. He was an effective administrator and ruthlessly pursued the dissolution of the monasteries. Cromwell can be regarded as one of the architects of the Church of England. In 1529 he suggested to Henry VIII that the king should become head of the Church in England in order to allow divorce proceedings against Henry's first wife.
