It pains me too see that the life of the woman was revolving round the man. Without anything else to do,and the biggest "job" a woman could get was being the king's mistress. And it was something to be proud of? Thank God I wasn't born in those times. Of course the producers put sex into light on the show, but really...don't they realize the impact it has? It couldn't have been all about sex!
And Anne? How can a king, a man, be influenced by a woman like that?
What I understood was that the king had no idea of how the people of England were living. And worse, he didn't care. It is a good thing that now we choose our rulers, nobody can get a country as a birth gift. And so many that did, didn't deserve it.
