  • Tensions rise as England fails to give its new queen the welcome Henry desires, and Anne gives birth to the king's promised "son" - Elizabeth, who will become one of the greatest monarchs who ever lived.

    This episode of The Tudors covers a large amount of time. Beginning with the official declaration of Henry's divorce from Catherine and ending with the birth of Elizabeth, England teeters precariously on the edge of schism as Rome prepares to excommunicate Henry if he does not submit to their desires. Allegiances become clearer, and the time has come to truly take sides as Henry prepares to demand that all his subjects swear an oath declaring him the leader of the church in England. The king's own passions for Anne dwindle after the birth of their daughter, and we see him enter into his first extramarital affair. The Tudors sizzles with excitement and intrigue as the second season continues, and make no mistake - soon heads will roll.
