This chapter begins by discussing that the difficulties in relations between Henry and James naturally affected their European partners, all of whom were forced to reconsider their position with regard to England following the religious schism. It then explains that this situation left Henry with no choice but a religious understanding between England and Scotland, based on his own reforming principles. It discusses that Henry VIII's interest in securing James V's friendship led to a series of diplomatic overtures in the following years. It then tells that this Henry's diplomatic overtures did not succeed. This chapter also discusses the outbreak of the Pilgrimage of Grace in England. It examines the international and Scottish threat to England and England's responses to that threat. It explains that the Anglo-Scottish negotiations eventually reached an impasse and showed signs of war.
