This episode traces Henry's quest to become a major player in Europe, his successes at the Battle of the Spurs and the Field of the Cloth of Gold, and his eventual humiliation after the Battle of Pavia. Throughout these years his relationship with the brilliant, Machiavellian Thomas Wolsey was central to his reign. But even Wolsey could not disguise the relative impotence of England and her monarchy when compared to the great European powers. By 1525 Henry was having a classic mid-life crisis, with the all too familiar desire to replace his ageing spouse with a younger model. But Henry's infatuation with Anne Boleyn would change the face of England and alter European power politics for centuries to come.moreless
