Episode cast overview, first billed only:


In 1536, Henry VIII, now age 45 (but still looking 30), marries Jane Seymour. She is known to have Catholic sympathies and, with Imperial ambassador Chapuys, helps reconcile Mary with her father, though Mary must sign a paper to declare that she is illegitimate. Jane's brother Thomas and one-eyed Francis Bryan are given posts at court. Meanwhile, Cromwell and his henchman, Rich, order the destruction of monasteries in Yorkshire, giving their treasures to the king. Protesters led by lawyer Robert Aske embark upon the Pilgrimage of Grace, a peaceful rebellion against Cromwell's actions and other social grievances, gathering strength as they march south. Henry sends Brandon with an army to meet them. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


In season three Henry VIII mentions Catherine of Aragon's nephew and calls him Charles V of Spain. This is not correct. He was Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, but in Spain he was King Charles I. See more »


Jane Seymour: [while Henry exchanges glances with Lady Misseldon over Jane's shoulder] Mary was so sweet and affectionate. She is everything I hoped she would be. It seems to be no wonder she's so marvelously beloved for her virtue and goodness in the hearts of the people. Your Majesty must invite her to court, show her off.
King Henry VIII: [appearing to be in deep thought] Hmm...
Jane Seymour: Your Majesty. Why will you not speak to me?
King Henry VIII: Because I'm disappointed
Jane Seymour: Why?
King Henry VIII: I'm disappointed because you are not yet with child.
