    • Gabrielle d'Estrées and One of Her Sisters
      When George Boleyn finds the two young ladies waiting in his bed, they are taking the pose of a famous painting of the late Renaissance, which features two women, the left with her hand on the right nipple of the other, in the exact same manner as shown in the episode. Gabrielle was a favorite of the French King Henry IV and the painting is considered by some to be a subtle allusion to her being pregnant with his illegitimate child.
