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

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.

and it will change the world!
