** The Duke of Norfolk was actually just a naive and gullible co-conspirator in a couple of plots, the first of which was only to marry MaryQueenOfScots, which alone was enough to get him jailed for a time (the second was to replace Elizabeth, which of course got his head the chop). He was not the cold and calculating power-hungry mastermind portrayed in the movie.

*** Nor was Mary of Guise his aunt, or related to him by blood - her daughter [[MaryQueenOfScots Mary I of Scotland]] was married to Henri's eldest brother, Francis II of France (married from 1558 until his death in 1560 - ''childless'', in fact); in fact, Henri's family, the House of Valois, were long-time rivals with Mary's House of Guise, and Henri never even ''met'' Mary of Guise in his lifetime.

** Though her father did reinstate both Mary and Elizabeth as legitimate just before his death, which is why Mary, who'd been declared illegitimate even earlier than Elizabeth, could still inherit the throne.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Pretty much the entire [[ChristianityIsCatholic Catholic Church]] and Catholics in general get this overhaul in the film. Both Bloody Mary and the Pope live in small, dark, spartan rooms where they give orders to crazed and murderous fanatics. Bloody Mary herself is depicted as a deranged toad of a woman [[UnfortunateImplications attended by a creepy dwarf maid.]] This is in contrast to Elizabeth, who is beautiful, brave, stately, and tolerant.
