Factional Politics, Anne of Cleves marriage (later rewarded so Henry was not that angry), Religion (closely allied with the reforms, but unlikely to fully reform to Protestantism)

What was the most likely cause of Cromwell's Fall?
Factional Politics - the Duke of Norfolk and Stephen Gardiner (Catholics) persuaded Henry with Catherine Howard, making it easy to influence him to attain and execute Cromwell.

Was Henry manipulated in his later years?
Yes - Marriage to C. Howard (devised by Catholic faction), Fall of C. Howard (devised by Cranmer), Attacks on Cranmer, Arrest of C. Parr (persuaded him of her devotion to him and his will), Denny and Paget had the dry stamp
