Storyline

A bellicose Henry eagerly sets out on an invasion of France as an ally to the Emporer Charles V. The King is motivated by his desire to reinvigorate himself in the face of failing health as well as his ambition to regain his French provinces. He confirms the line of succession with new wife Catherine Parr and entrusts her with the regency in his absence. Richard Rich and Bishop Gardner is unhappy with the choice of someone so inexperienced, and Gardner is especially suspicious of Catherine, believing she has Lutheran sympathies, especially after she appoints Reformationist ex-clergyman Hugh Latimer, as her personal chaplain. Henry and his 40,000 man army lay siege to the walled city of Boulogne, believing their artillery sufficient to overcome resistance. When the city continues to hold out, tunnels are dug as a wave of dysentery begins to assault the English army. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Goofs

Very briefly, when Henry is seen looking over his troops at Boulogne atop an overlook, a coat of arms is shown fixed to the outside wall of it. This coat of arms is meant to represent Henry VIII and the Tudor reign, but incorrectly shows the harp in the third quadrant. Though Henry was officially king of Ireland by this time, the Irish Harp was not officially taken into the royal arms until the reign of James I, also known as James VI of Scotland, after the Tudor era had finished. To be more accurate to Henry's arms there should be included the French fleur de lis upon a blue field in the first and fourth quadrants, but there is none. The coat of arms shown is closer to the arms used currently by Queen Elizabeth II; however even this would be inaccurate, as the lion in the second quadrant, shown as golden on a blue field, would have to be red on a golden field to be accurate to this.
