It's 1540, Henry VIII has married his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves. Being dissatisfied with the match, he quickly moves to have the marriage annulled. The blame and responsibility for the match, falls to the Lord Privy Seal, Thomas Cromwell who is put in charge of getting the King his annulment. Already it seems the King has found interest in another young woman at court, many young women in fact. All appeal to Henry except his German wife.
As if Henry's marriage problems were not enough, he is also dealing with the growing dissent among the Catholics in his realm. To take care of two problems at once, Henry forms a plan to be put into action after the finalization of the annulment. The plan is simple, marry his daughter Mary to Lord Cromwell thus he thinks he will punish Cromwell, and force Mary into a situation where she will have no choice but to convert to Protestantism. Will Henry's master plan work to eradicate the Catholic and Protestant divide? Will he get his annulment? How will the Princess and the Lord Privy Seal fare in their marriage? Can history be changed and lives spared or will it all end in carnage? Join us to find out!
