Trivia

King Henry tells Sir Thomas More that he is "not a saint." Sir Thomas More does, in fact, go on to become a saint. He was canonized in 1935 for his allegiance to the Pope during the English Reformation. See more »

Goofs

The series is set circa 1526 (when Henry began his pursuit of Anne Boleyn), during King Henry's mid-thirties. However, the scene in the Vatican before the Pope's death shows the iconic Saint Peter's dome, which was not completed until 1621, almost two hundred years later. See more »

Quotes

King Henry VIII: [speaking to Wolsey about court funds] My father was a careful man, a shrewd man, a businessman. He left me a great deal of money, Your Eminence. I intend to spend it.
