* After tiring of Bishop Gardiner's constant investigation and burning of protestants. Henry gives a passionate speech about how he is fed up of it to one of his aides. When Gardiner requests a audience, the aide sums up the speech simply as 'The king requires you to leave court'. Gardnier's face goes white and borderline flees the palace.

* Anne Seymour in the last episode, when she[[spoiler: calmly informs the feared bishop Gardiner that he will not serve that warrant and why]]. * Katherine Parr, also in the last episode when she manages [[spoiler:to convince Henry that her religious debates with him were meant only to distract him from his painful leg ulcer, thereby saving her own skin--which no previous wife managed outside of Anne (see ExtremeDoormat)]]. Again, extra points for being TruthInTelevision.

* Anne Seymour Boleyn's execution in the last episode, when she[[spoiler: calmly informs the feared bishop Gardiner that he will not serve that warrant and why]]. * Katherine Parr, also in the last episode season 2, when she manages [[spoiler:to convince Henry that faces her religious debates death with him were meant only to distract him from his painful leg ulcer, thereby saving her own skin--which no previous wife managed outside such dignity and poise despite earlier breakdowns. * Surrey, Suffolk, and a handful of Anne (see ExtremeDoormat)]]. Again, extra points for being TruthInTelevision.English soldiers cutting down a party of French skirmishers during the Siege of Boulogne.

* Henry finally deciding to use the various factions within his court for his own amusement. When confronted with the fact that one faction seeks to arrest the Queen of heresy, rather than simply have the warrant countermanded, he lets it be served and then turns all his rage on the man trying to serve it. The server practically runs away in the face of Henry's anger.

The server practically runs away in the face of Henry's anger. Also it should be noted that, when he rails against the server, he starts by throwing away his cane and walking up to him un-aided.

* Anne Boleyn's execution in season 2, when she faces her death with such dignity and poise despite earlier breakdowns * Earlier, Thomas More's own execution is the epitome of FaceDeathWithDignity. Hell, everything about that man was dignified... except for his tendency to brutally burn people for heresy.

* Surrey, Suffolk, and a handful of English soldiers cutting down a party of French skirmishers during the Siege of Boulogne.

* Catherine of Aragon at the Legatine Court. Extra points for being a CMOA in history too; the speech was cut down and translated into modern English, but was essentially the same thing said by the real Catherine at the Blackfriars trial.

* Catherine of Aragon at the Legatine Court. It's a triumph not only for Catherine, but for Maria Doyle Kennedy who played her. And in that moment, when she walks out of Blackfriars with her head held high and the people begin to cheer, everyone knows that no matter what comes, she will always be England's true queen. ** Extra points for being a CMOA in history too; the speech was cut down and translated into modern English, but was essentially the same thing said by the real Catherine at the Blackfriars trial.
