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.

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 »


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.
