I know that women were little more than property in the 1500s, but the numerous deaths or disappearances of young women in this show is beginning to disturb me. I went back through the episode guide and have come up with this list of girls who were murdered, disappeared or gone mad. How normal were these statistics for 1500s Europe?
Various prostitutes (I know some of them were named but I can't remember them)
The girl that was dragged off by the as-yet-explained monsters (can't remember her name)
The young woman that Henry pushed out the window (can't remember her name)
Isobel died in childbirth, which I understand
I suspect Penelope is next.....
