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

Trivia

Henry actually conducted three wars against the French: 1512-14, 1522-23, and the one depicted here, 1543-46. See more »

Goofs

Henry arrives to Boulogne wearing an armor and chain-mail, also his horse and Brandon's are covered in this chain-mail which seems clearly fake. In any case chain-mail was out of use at that time; having been replaced by plate armor, also it is very unlikely that a horse would have been fully covered this way. See more »
