Catherine of Aragon seemed to be the perfect queen. She had love for her husband and was loyal to her people and to her faith, but she was unable to bear Henry a surviving son.
Chronicling the story of each of Henry VIII's wives, this lavish period drama brings Tudor England to life. Each episode focuses on one of his wives, from Catherine of Aragon to Catherine Parr. Through their stories, the character of England's most infamous, fickle king is revealed.
Henry's marriage to the raw-boned Anne of Cleves is the story of an uneasy alliance between England and Germany, a political convenience. But while the annulment of that marriage amounts to a corresponding escape from political dilemmas, it also means the parting of two close friends.
