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

At the siege of Boulogne, a figure appears accompanying Henry, and wearing a sallet (helmet) from the 1470's. Even if out-of-fashion armor may have been used, it is extremely unlikely that someone close to the king would have worn equipment some 70 years out of date. See more »
