Question from Sarah - Sack of Rome and Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn

Rome was sacked by Charles V's troops in 1527, around the time Henry VIII was promising himself to Anne Boleyn. Would some (perhaps including Henry?) have seen the Sack of Rome as proof God did not favour the Pope anymore? Could these two events be connected at all?

I describe the sacking and its impact on Henry in Tudor The Family Story, and also how it was viewed.
