The Tudors in Africa
British Occupied Nazumbia, 1930
Henry VIII of Nazumbia had ruled the country since he was a teenager, he lived in a lovely mock Baroque palace in the capital city Brighton, but the real rulers of the country were the British.
Henry was desperate for a son to rule after he died, however his wife Katherine was passed menopause and so there would be no chance of a baby let alone a boy.
Henry was a massive fan of the African American Jazz Singer Anne Boleyn from New Orleans, who supported independence for every nation that was under European colonial rule.
Anne Boleyn often visited Nazumbia and she met Henry several times, she even sung at a few of his birthday parties.
But in order to divorce Katherine, Henry would have to ask permission from the British governor Thomas Wolsey.
Henry could not execute his wife because her father was a monarch but of a tribe that lived in the mountains of Nazumbia. The British also had to ensure who he married as they didn't want him marrying a white woman and a Divorce wasn't on his official list of privileges.
"A divorce is not something civilized people in the white world would normally consider. But a primitive so called Royal like you, well I would never dream of it. You have an official list of privileges and a divorce is not one of them," Wolsey told him over the phone.
"You get me this divorce," Henry bellowed.
"Henry your majesty I am not allowed to give you that privilege and you know it"
"Well if you can't give me this privilege then I have decided that I will make Nazumbia independent, free of white imperial rule"
"And how would that happen?"
"You wait and see. Now good day sir" Henry then slammed down the phone.
Henry decided that he and an army of native volunteering men from across the country would rebel against the British and would set fire to their Headquarters and the Governors home.
After the rebellion the British were horrified and they gave in so they decided to give Nazumbia its independence.
A lot of European governments were horrified that African people were ruling this country in Southern Africa called Nazumbia.
Henry promised he would make Nazumbia like America. To compete with Western nations he founded Automobile companies, Nazumbia Armed Forces, Fashion Houses, Schools and Universities, Cinemas and Dancehalls, Film Studios, Zoo's and he turned the country's largest lake Everton into a holiday and leisure resort.
Henry soon divorced Katherine.
"But where will I go now?" she cried.
"You and our daughter Mary will go into exile"
"Yes but where?"
"Any country that will let you in"
Katherine wrote to the governments of Germany, France, Russia, Japan, Australia, South Africa and America not on of which would let her in. The only country, which offered her residence, was Brazil so Katherine and Mary immediately fled to there.
Henry soon married Anne Boleyn; they had a honeymoon to the Bahamas and by the time they were home Anne was pregnant.
