Episode Summary


Historical drama chronicling Thomas Cromwell's rise to power in the court of Henry VIII. Although he has no official title, Cromwell is relied on more and more in the running of the king's affairs, and he is successful in pushing a bill through Parliament that acknowledges Henry rather than the pope as head of the Church of England. A major obstacle to Henry's marriage plan arises in the form of Harry Percy, and Cromwell approaches fixing this with relish. At a dance, Anne flirts with the French nobility to Henry's evident fury. She and Henry argue violently, but when they are reconciled Henry finally pledges himself to Anne before witnesses. Henry marries Anne upon their return to England, and she is crowned queen. Even in her moment of triumph, Anne knows the old noble families hate her and will never accept her. She has achieved what she wanted, but it has come at a cost and she must now produce a male heir or risk suffering Katherine's fate.
