Storyline

With a French fleet in the Channel, England needs an alliance with the Protestant League, hence Cromwell's endorsement of a wedding to German Anne of Cleves though the king is disappointed that she is less beautiful than her portrait, which fact reflects badly on Cromwell, who urged Holbein to lie in his painting. Brandon and Edward Seymour are amused at Cromwell's discomfort. Mary, a Catholic, is less than cordial to her new stepmother, though Elizabeth favours her. The king's putrid leg wound means that Anne finds him equally repulsive in bed whilst Bryan's obsessive pursuit of Pole once more ends in predictable and comedic failure. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

At the welcoming reception for Anne of Cleves, Henry introduces each of his daughters as "Princess." However, by historical accounts, both Mary and Elizabeth were still considered by Henry to be illegitimate, he would never have accorded them such a title, as it would in effect be declaring them legitimate. Neither Mary nor Elizabeth ever regained the title of Princess, and continued to be known as "Lady" until they each in turn succeeded to the throne. See more »

Goofs

The watchmen looking out for enemy ships in the English Channel spot the French fleet through a telescope. Telescopes weren't invented until the last decade of the sixteenth century, at least fifty years after the events depicted here. See more »
