Storyline

The legatine court's divorce trial continues in the Queen's absence, hearing testimony suggesting prince Arthur carnally consummated his marriage to Catherine: embarrassing for the court, amusing for the populace. Catherine's council, bishop Fisher, dares claim even heaven can't dissolve the royal marriage, comparing to Herod Antipas' adultery shamed by Saint John the Baptist who was executed for that truth. Woolsey sends Thomas More to Cambria (Cambray) to check if France and the pope remain irreconcilable with the emperor. After Anne walks off, disbelieving Wolsey's promises to the king of a divorce by summer, Henry implies to cardinal Campeggio a negative verdict could turn him and England Lutheran, like half of Germany, yet after a papal message the legate prorogues the court till the end of the Roman Curia's recess, in October; imperial ambassador Mendoza, who is ceding his post to bishop Chapuys, tells Catherine it's the emperor's doing.

Trivia

Sir Anthony says while listening to Greensleeves, "Omnia vincit amor," to which Henry VIII translates as "No one can resist love." The literal translation is "Love conquers all." The correct Latin translation for Henry VIII's response would be, "Nemo potest resistere amorem." See more »

Goofs

(possibly deliberate by filmmakers) Henry is seen to be composing the song "Greensleeves." There is a persistent belief that Greensleeves was composed by Henry VIII for Anne Boleyn. It is said that Boleyn's alleged rejection of King Henry's attempts to seduce her may be referred to in the song when the writer's love "cast me off discourteously." However, Henry did not compose "Greensleeves," which is probably Elizabethan in origin and is based on an Italian-style of composition that did not reach England until after his death. See more »

Quotes

Queen Catherine of Aragon: Have you no kind things to say?
King Henry VIII: Kind?
Queen Catherine of Aragon: To your wife, the mother of your child. You treat me so unkindly and in public neglect me.
King Henry VIII: Katherine, you must accept the inevitable. The weight of academic opinion is against us. We were never legally man and wife. And the court will decide in my favour and if the court does not decide in my favour, I shall denounce the pope as a heretic and marry whom I please.
