The Tudors

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 Boleyn became his obsession. During this time Cardinal Wolsey rose to become the power behind his throne, ruling ruthlessly and nearly absolutely while Henry (played by Johnathon Rhys Meyers) for the most part followed the Cardinal's advice, maneuvering through a series of betrayals and plots against him. When Anne Boleyn plays much harder to get than any woman ever has, Henry begins to search for a way out of his marriage to Catherine 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 ... Written by KGF Vissers and Ayla Slessor

After the murder by Frenchmen of his uncle, the English ambassador in Urbino, one of the Itamian states being invaded by France, young Tudor king Henry VIII orders his council to prepare war on France. His de facto prime minister, cardinal Wolsey, obeys but actually prepares an alternative, a pan-European institutionalized peace, to Thomas More's humanist liking, and plots to be rewarded with the papacy. Meanwhile Henry, whose major sorrow is the lack of a son, enjoys life, especially jousting, hunting and games with duke Charles Brandon and adulterous love, which only adds to the hatred of men around the duke of Buckingham, who believes to be the true pretender to the throne.

Henry is rewarded by Rome with the hereditary honorary title Fidei Defensor (Defender of the Faith) for his denunciation of Martin Luther in a writing by his own hand, helped by Thomas More, arousing great anger with Luther and his followers. Poor mister Pace has gone mad in the Tower before the innocent secretary is released; cardinal Wolsey nominates his successor: Thomas Cromwell, equally low-born and ruthlessly ambitious. A victory at Pavia by Henry's Habsburg ally, emperor Charles, who even captured the French king Francis I, is celebrated in a joust, where Henry personally fights, and failing to close his helmet gets wounded, almost losing an eye, but gets back in the saddle, as if he were invulnerable; a reckless jump over a bog with a pole which breaks and miserable medical care -bleeding- remind Henry of his mortality, which makes the king focus on the Tudor dynasty's lack of a male heir. Princess Margaret marries the old decrepit king of Portugal only when promised she may ... Written by KGF Vissers

The legatine court's divorce trial continues in the Queen's absence, hearing testimony suggesting prince Arthur carnally consummated his marriage to Catherine: embarrassing for the court, amusing for the populace.

Woolsey sends Thomas More to Cambria (Cambray) to check if France and the pope remain irreconcilable with the emperor. After Anne walks off, disbelieving Wolsey's promises to the king of a divorce by summer, Henry implies to cardinal Campeggio a negative verdict could turn him and England Lutheran, like half of Germany, yet after a papal message the legate prorogues the court till the end of the Roman Curia's recess, in October; imperial ambassador Mendoza, who is ceding his post to bishop Chapuys, tells Catherine it's the emperor's doing.

Now cardinal Wolsey lives in misery as penniless archbishop of and in York, barred from court, hoping in vain Anne Boleyn who broke his hold on the king will reward his efforts as she once wrote, honors and offices are mainly distributed to the Boleyn clan, with Norfolk in charge -Charles Brandon neglects his joint presidency- of the royal council. While the devout, rather ascetic new chancellor Thomas More is determined to crush heresy, personally attending the stake, Thomas Cromwell convinces Henry that under Luther's vision the king is above all earthly laws, even his annulment should merely be treated as a theological matter, so he is commissioned to put the case before European theology faculties, while ambassador Boleyn must approach pope and emperor. Once he tastes the burden of government, Henry reproaches the council less virtue and worse results then the cardinal, especially now the treasury is empty and troubles spread, but when Cromwell learns trough a physician about ...
