Trivia

There are striking similarities between the War of the Roses' feuding families Lancaster and York and that of the fictional book and TV series Game of Thrones' feuding families Lannister and Stark. Michelle Fairley portrays the strong and determined matriarch in each TV series, though in this she is on the Lancaster/Lannister side while her character of Catelyn Stark fights for her Stark/York side.

Because he spent much of his life in France Henry VII would more than likely not have spoken with an English accent. See more »

User Reviews

 
Not bad, but ultimately unsatisfying
20 May 2017 | by sc_mackinnonSee all my reviews

Miniseries like these just chap my hide. They take a fascinating subject and period ---and then proceed to take pointless, unnecessary liberties with it. This is not historically accurate. The acting isn't bad, but the plot and progression get a bit choppy.

This is little more than a medieval soap opera. Henry VII was a helluva character in real life - -why spoil it? This miniseries fails to address his good works, as well as his fall into corruption and detachment as his reign went on.

If you're into old Dynasty or Dallas style shows, this is for you. But if you're a history buff like me, skip it, unless it's a really rainy day and you're looking to kill time.
