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?


In this episode and several subsequent ones, Master Mark Smeaton is shown playing a modern violin. The equivalent stringed instrument in Tudor times was the viol, played differently from a violin, and shaped differently. The bow with which is was played was also shaped differently to the one shown here (clearly a modern bow). See more »


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]
