King Henry VIII, the young ambitious monarch of England, is advised by his Lord Chancellor to sponsor a ‘Treaty of Universal Peace.’ Meanwhile, he discovers that his mistress, lady-in-waiting to his Queen, is pregnant with his child.
Despite extravagant claims of loyalty to France during the ‘Field of Cloth of Gold’ ceremonies, Henry contemplates an alliance with Charles V, King of Spain, who was recently named Holy Roman Emperor.
A new and important ally sweeps into Henry’s court in the form of Charles V, the most powerful man in Europe and nephew to Henry’s wife Katherine of Aragon.
Henry’s increasing disinterest in his Queen—and the realization that he still hasn’t produced a legitimate heir to the Tudor dynasty—conjure an urgent desire for radical action.
Henry is a king of passion and perseverance. Efforts at alliances—both personal and political—face setbacks, but the King remains undeterred.
Personal and political allegiances continue to change in Henry’s court. The King grows ever more confident in his role as monarch and more enamored of the young Anne Boleyn.
It’s dark days for Tudor England. The mysterious sweating sickness which is almost always fatal to those who catch it, runs rampant.
Pope Clement’s special envoy arrives in London to oversee the court deciding upon the legitimacy of Henry’s marriage to Katherine of Aragon.
Cardinal Wolsey’s fall is quick and pitiless. Stripped of office and authority, he is banished from the court and sent far from his much-beloved King.
Cardinal Wolsey is down but not yet out. Although exiled, he tries to gather last-minute support from his old enemy, Queen Katherine.
