Storyline

1533:- Having given birth to Elizabeth Anne declares Katherine's daughter Mary a bastard and orders Thomas to arrange a French marriage for her child. Scheming lady-in-waiting Jane Rochford, Anne's sister-in-law, informs Thomas of Anne's indiscretions whilst prophetess Elizabeth Barton continues to denounce the king. Thomas however sees her as part of a group of conspirators seeking to overthrow Henry and rounds them up, sending some to their deaths. A vengeful Anne wants Thomas More to be among them but Thomas successfully persuades Norfolk to beg Henry to spare him. Nonetheless More's resistance to the legitimacy of the royal marriage seals his death warrant. Written by don @ minifie-1
