Storyline

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

Goofs

During the play as commissioned and produced by Cromwell, there was a character that is to represent France or Francis I, with his face painted in the tricolour flag of modern France. Although it is probably done in that fashion for modern viewers to recognise, but the tricolour will not come into existence until the French Revolution 255 years later. See more »

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]
