Series 1-Episode 3

Series 1-Episode 3



Historians Suzannah Lipscomb and Dan Jones focus on the king's marriage to his third wife, Jane Seymour, who finally gave him the son he craved, but died within days of childbirth. Henry's joy turned to despair, and he chose to marry the German princess Anne of Cleves. However, he found her so ugly that he became impotent, with Thomas Cromwell paying for the fiasco with his head.
