The Tudors

(7 votes)

The Tudors 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 Boelyn became his obsession. During this time Cardinal Wolsey rose to become the power behind his throne, ruling ruthlessly and nearly absolutely while Henry for the most part followed the Cardinal's advice, maneuvering through a series of betrayals and plots against him.

When Anne Boelyn plays much harder to get than any woman ever has, Henry begins to search for a way out of his marriage to Katherine 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...

Trivia

The character of Princess Margaret, Henry's sister, is actually a composite of two sisters, his older sister Margaret Tudor and his younger sister Mary Tudor. While the events in the series come from Mary's life, the substitution of Margaret's name helps to avoid confusion with Henry's daughter with Catherine of Aragon, also named Mary.

There is no historical evidence to suggests that Thomas Tallis was bisexual.

Steven Waddington’s character, Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham, lays claim to the English Crown by being the descent of Edward II. 1991 Steven Waddington played Edward II in Derek Jarman's film version of Christopher Marlowe's play Edward II (1991). Each of their claims to the English Crown were brought to an horrible end.

The character of Princess Margaret is actually a composite of Henry's two sisters, Mary and Margaret. As such, there are several historical timeline inaccuracies for Princess Margaret, including dates, death and marriages.

Henry FitzRoy, Henry and Bessie Blount's son, did not actually die until shortly after he turned 17 years old. His mother was not married when she gave birth to him.
