Plot Summary

This costume drama features England's splendid Renaissance dynasty under King Henry VIII. Beginning in Season 1 when Henry VIII was growing desperate for an heir and growing distant from his first wife, the series moves quickly to the period when Anne Boleyn became his obsession. During this time Cardinal Wolsey rose to become the power behind his throne, ruling ruthlessly and nearly absolutely while Henry (played by Johnathon Rhys Meyers) for the most part followed the Cardinal's advice, maneuvering through a series of betrayals and plots against him. When Anne Boleyn plays much harder to get than any woman ever has, Henry begins to search for a way out of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon, so that he can make Anne his wife. Needing a divorce, Henry turns to Wolsey, who promises to help him create waves of backlash from the church, as well as the Spanish Habsburg dynasty and its overseas empire. Against this background gyrate the private lives and political intrigues of several members of the royal court and chancery. This includes Henry's friend and his sister Margaret's true love Charles Brandon, the Habsburg ambassadors, greedy and power-hungry schemers, their incidental victims and composer Thomas Tallis... Written by KGF Vissers and Ayla Slessor

Edit
Trivia The character of Princess Margaret is actually a composite of Henry's older sister, Margaret Tudor, and his younger sister, Mary Tudor. The events in the series are from Mary's life; using Margaret's name helps avoid confusion with Henry's daughter with Katherine of Aragon. See more »
Goofs White was the mourning color of queens, not black. However, Spain's mourning colors were yellow and black. Katherine of Aragon wearing black is historically accurate. See more »
