He is also known for his changes in the English political system. He would achieve most of his work through his chief ministers, whom he would banish or execute when they stopped being useful. He was on the verge of bankruptcy due to his costly continental wars. Eventually, he oversaw the union of England and Wales in the Laws and Wales Acts 1535 and 1542, and becoming the first English Monarch to rule over Ireland by the Crown of Ireland Act in 1542
