what "he" is referring to?

Hi Rupesh, indeed it might seem that the pronoun he has no eligible antecedent, since the noun King Henry is not present in the sentence, only the possessive form King Henry's is present.

However, GMAT has been flexible on this front. A subject pronoun can refer to a possessive noun, as illustrated in the following officially correct sentence:

A and B are passive voice, poor choices.
C has a modifier issue. King Henry is modifying ‘tense private drama’.
D has the same problem.
So E is the right answer
