King Henry VIII was set to battle Hillary Clinton in King Henry VIII vs Hillary Clinton. However, the Epic Rap Battles of History crew did not like the way the original audio turned out, and therefore wanted to redo it, but ultimately were unable to finish it. He was going to be portrayed by Shay Carl.
Information on the rapper
King Henry VIII was born on June 28th, 1491, in Greenwich, England, under the name Henry Tudor. He was the King of England, and later, King of Ireland. He is also known for his role in separating the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church and for having six wives, two of which he ordered beheaded because they wouldn't bear him a son.
Henry VIII initially succeeded his father and took his place upon the throne several years after the death of his brother, Arthur. He played a critical role in the English Reformation, turning his country into a Protestant nation.
Following his death at the age of 55 on January 28th, 1547, in London, England, Henry VIII was succeeded by his only surviving son, Edward, who inherited the throne, becoming King Edward VI. In the years to come, a play based on his life titled Henry VIII was co-written by English playwrights, William Shakespeare and John Fletcher.
- Henry VIII was originally going to appear in Season 2, as shown in the preview at the end of Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD.
- This never ended up happening, but the crew is planning to redo his battle at some point, which Nice Peter has announced on the ERB Forums. It's unknown when or if the battle will be released, as Peter stated on a Monday Show, "He is a touchy subject around here."
- He is the only cameo at the end of Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD to not appear in a battle afterwards.
- If he had not been scrapped, he would have been the first male to rap against a female. This title was given to Adam instead.
- In a clip from Nice Peter's Monday Show, a clip of Shay Carl dancing to the same beat that was in the leaked 15 second clip was shown.
