A WAR OF RELIGION

I had an interesting thought for my third fantasy book. At some point in the story, the main character will do something that will cause his more pious subjects to rebel against him. I will be drawing inspiration from how Henry VIII changed the Church of England during the Reformation. Both my character and Henry VIII did things that would secure the future of their dynasty and the zealots in their kingdoms turned on them for it. Henry VIII tried to secure his dynasty by having a male heir no matter the cost. My character tries to secure his dynasty by rediscovering and utilizing long forgotten magical secrets that his more pious subjects consider dark and unnatural. Overall, I think this is going to be an intriguing concept to tinker with as I continue to write.
