Passion, ambition and treachery collide in this lavish historical drama depicting King Henry VIII's infamous reign

Henry marries Catherine Howard, a teenager with a colourful past. Catherine's roguish cousin, the Earl of Surrey, returns to England to claim his place in the royal court.

Henry's almost 40-year-long reign draws to a close. In his final years, he marries twice more, and enters into an ill-advised war with France that takes its toll on both his health and rule.
