Storyline

A paranoid king has Pole's relations executed for treason as he looks for a new wife. Front runners are Christine,Duchess of Milan, who sensibly rejects Henry, having heard how vile he is, and Anne, Duchess of Cleves, who is Cromwell's favourite as she is a staunch Protestant. Oily Bishop Gardner splits on Protestant 'heretic' John Lambert, who is killed for his beliefs and who is a friend of Cromwell, whom the bishop tries, unsuccessfully, to incriminate.Based on Holborn's portraits of Anne and her sister, the king opts for Anne as his bride.

Goofs

When Francis Bryan is searching the Poles' house for evidence of conspiracy to overthrow the king, he and his associates come across what is supposed to be a 'Plantaganet' banner - This is most likely an error, as it was most likely the Tudors that first brought the red and white roses of the Houses of York and Lancaster together to symbolize the end of the Wars of the Roses and the union of both houses through the marriage of Elizabeth of York and Henry Tudor.
