Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
The character of Princess Margaret is actually a composite of Henry's older sister, Margaret Tudor, and his younger sister, Mary Tudor. The events in the series are from Mary's life; using Margaret's name helps avoid confusion with Henry's daughter with Katherine of Aragon.
Creator Michael Hirst wrote every episode of the series.
There is no historical evidence suggesting that Thomas Tallis was bisexual.
'James Frain' would later play Lord Warwick in the mini series The White Queen (2013) which focuses on Henry's grandmother Elizabeth Woodville.
The names of Henry's six wives are spelled (correctly) as follows: Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Kathryn Howard, and Katherine Parr.
James Frain also played a prominent role as the Spanish ambassador in Elizabeth (1998), a movie that chronologically takes place after this series.
The "T" in The Tudors (2007) logo is three-fold: First, it's a "T" that stands for "Tudors". Second, in Christianity, it's the cross Jesus Christ was crucified on. And third, it's a sword pointing downward.
The final TV role of Simon Ward.

Peter O'Toole's scenes were all filmed in a week.
Steven Waddington's character, Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham, lays claim to the English Crown by being the descent of Edward II. In 1991 Steven Waddington played Edward II in Derek Jarman's film version of Christopher Marlowe's play Edward II (1991). Each of their claims to the English Crown were brought to a horrible end.
