Question from Sara - Germany and the Holy Roman Empire in the Tudor era

I have a question about Germany during the Tudor Era. I know that Germany was part of the Holy Roman Empire, but was the name Germany associated with it that early, or did the name come later? Also, what were people from the Holy Roman Empire called? Thanks a lot for any answers you can give me.

Question from Sandra - Old rhyme about Henry VIII

Can anyone help me with this one. I remember from school part of a poem about Henry VIII it goes like this

"Bluff King Hal was full of beans, he married half a dozen queens, for 3 called Kate he cried the banns, 1 called Jane and a couple of Annes."

Can you help with the rest of the verses it goes on to describe all the wifes and what happened to them. I would love to get the rest of the words for my children as I think it is a great way to remember and help them with their history.
