* AcademicAthlete: Danielle, who's a bookworm, a tree-climber, and does her own heavy lifting, certainly qualifies. She's also an accomplished pitcher (the apple scene) and [[spoiler: swordswoman]].

Added DiffLines:

** Another big one is that Henry saves the Mona Lisa, which is depicted as being painted on canvas rolled up in a tube, when it's actually on wood.

* BlondesAreEvil: Marguerite again, very blond and very much an antagonistic bitch.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Marguerite and Jacqueline's father is evidently deceased prior to the movie, but who's running the barony of Ghent? It may be that Rodmilla de Ghent is the Baroness in her OWN right considering that [[spoiler: The Queen stripped her of it and there would be no point of stripping a dowager of her title.]]

* FamousAncestor: It's not clear exactly who the woman telling the story to the brothers Grimm is (they address her as "Your Majesty," while the credits identify her as "Grande Dame"), but at the end she refers to Henry and Danielle as being her great-great-grandparents, adding that by the time of "the Revolution," "the truth of their romance had been reduced to a simple FairyTale. It's been speculated that the woman is Marie Therese, daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoniette. It would make sense, since she would be the direct descendant of Henry and Danielle, and would qualify to be "Your Majesty", since she was Queen, by marriage, of France.

That was how long it was between her uncle/father-in-law's signing of the official instrument of abdication and the time her husband (reluctantly, and despite her impassioned pleading against it) signed the same document. Her headstone declares her ''"Queen Dowager of France"'' in recognition of their brief reign.[[/note]]

** [[RebelPrince Prince Henry]] of France is supposed to marry Princess Gabriella of Spain, and it's implied that it'll be a diplomatic nightmare for his father King Frances if Henry sidesteps the match. Henry, who especially at the beginning of the movie is kind of a brat, doesn't care.

** The entire movie is rather hodge-podge as far as accuracy goes. Thomas More's ''Utopia'' was published in 1516, and Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519 (in France, it must be said). 1519 was also the same year Henry II, son of Frances I, was ''born''. His mother's name was Claude, not Marie, and he was married to Catherine de Medici.

Danielle de Barbarac (Creator/DrewBarrymore) is the beloved only child of the widowed Auguste de Barbarac and his late wife, Nicole de Lancret. When she is eight years old, he remarries the Baroness [[WickedStepmother Rodmilla de Ghent]] (portrayed by Creator/AnjelicaHuston), and brings her home along with her two daughters, [[RoyalBrat spoiled and cruel Marguerite]] and [[ShrinkingViolet gentle but weak-willed Jacqueline]]. Shortly thereafter, he dies, leaving Danielle to the care of her stepmother, who already resents the love that he displays to his daughter, and the estate's three devoted servants - the housemaids, Paulette and Louise, and the retainer, Louise's husband Maurice.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: This is ''almost'' right, but... the researchers misunderstood. At one point, Henry feeds one of the stepsisters chocolate saying "the Spanish monks keep sending bricks of this stuff." Yes, the Spanish were responsible for bringing chocolate abroad during their missions, and yes, chocolate was popular in France, causing the rise of several "chocolate houses", but there wouldn't be any "bricks" of chocolate. Solid chocolate was developed about two centuries later by the ''British'', and mastered by the Swiss (who made milk chocolate). So, either she would be drinking it (she wasn't) or eating a cocoa bean (which is bigger), or the seed (conceivable, but she wouldn't be finding it "sinful" because the seeds of the bean were rather bitter without sugar). In any case, shipping to France would not have been done by the Spanish, since the Spanish kept it a secret for a century or so. [[http://www.eurococoa.com/en/x/144/cocoa-story More here]].

* PleaseDontLeaveMe: Rodmilla does one of these to Auguste as he lies dying of a heart attack, but it's more out of selfishness than love, since she's wailing that he "cannot leave [her] here" and basically ignoring his heartbroken young daughter kneeling beside him, and proceeds to be horrible to her for the next ten years. It's implied she's also jealous of the fact taht Auguste said his "I love you" to Danielle instead of her.
