But while his subjects wilt, the King's vigor remains undiminished. The Reformation goes on and Henry has just married the beautiful Catherine Howard, his fifth Queen, who is a mere seventeen years old. Catherine is different from earlier wives in more ways than age: far from being nobility she was 'discovered' by some of the King's friends in a boarding house for wayward young ladies. Joan Bulmer the new Queen's best friend from her youth, is hired as a lady in waiting; aside from her friendship she knows too much scandalous detail about Catherine's sexual past to be outside the court. The Queen's 'low' background combined with her youth and beauty, arouses a lusty familiarity in certain members of Henry's court.

Goofs

Around 38 minutes in, Catherine looks out of a diamond leaded window at Culpepper. We see her as the camera looks into the room, but looking outwards the shape of the lead framing is different. It is not just a question of focus as the soldering is different on the joints. Also, at the end, both Henry and Culpepper look at Catherine in the rain and the device is not used. See more »

Quotes

Ambassador Bishop Chapuys: [to Charles Brandon, who appears deep in thought] Your Grace.
Charles Brandon: [turns to him, slightly startled] Excellency.
Ambassador Bishop Chapuys: Your Grace seems somewhat distracted.
Charles Brandon: I was just thinking of those who are no longer here to sup with us. I had a moment of nostalgia... even for my enemies. I understand Thomas Boleyn died recently.
Ambassador Bishop Chapuys: Yes, and the only mourners at his funeral were the ghosts of his children.
