Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Cromwell convinces Henry the religious houses' immorality justifies spoliation, which even finances plays to show the people the papist 'debauchery'. Henry wants the French king's junior son to marry Anne's daughter Elisabeth. The French envoy, an admiral entertained by duke Charles Brandon, proposes, rather then legitimize the royal son, the dauphin to wed Katherine's daughter Mary- or the emperor's. Charles tells Chapuys he believes Anne is a witch. After More's ghost haunts Henry, Anne further looses openly unfaithful Henry's favor. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


As SFX footage of Rome is shown, it depicts an already finished Basilica of St. Peter. While the foundations have been laid some years before Henry VIII took the throne, the great church was still being built throughout his reign. Henry died in 1547, and St Peter's basilica wasn't finished until the end of the 16th Century (the dome itself was only finished by 1590, and the entire church by 1626). The footage clearly shows the basilica in much the same shape as it is today, while it should be only partly finished and surrounded by scaffolding, ramps, cranes; and the square in front would sooner be filled with workmen rather than worshipers.

King Henry VIII: Some wine?
French Ambassador: Of course! Which domain does it come from? Is it Bordeaux?
King Henry VIII: This is English wine.
French Ambassador: English wine?
King Henry VIII: We've been making wine in England since the Romans.
French Ambassador: [Sarcastically] As late as that?
[He drinks some]
French Ambassador: It's, uh, very fruity... and strong like a gladiator sweats.
[Although Henry laughs, he is clearly not amused]
