* NeverMyFault: Rodmilla frequently blames, punishes, and sells her servants for her own poverty and debt, even though her own neglect of the manor (which has the best soil in the providence) and tendency to sell off the servants she needs to work the land (which would bring income) is the reason for her misfortune.

** Rodmilla gets a single moment of this when she tells Danielle how sorry she is she never got to know her mother that she looks a lot like her father.

* TheUnfavourite: Of Rodmilla's two daughters, Jacqueline is obviously ''not'' as dear to her mother as Marguerite is and obviously there's Danielle, whom the Baroness [[AbusiveParents quite clearly doesn't care about in any kind of motherly way at all]].
* WellDoneDaughterGirl: Part of the reason why Danielle puts up with Rodmilla as long as she could is the mere hope of receiving a speckle of maternal affection from her. Shown best when Danielle lights up a bit when Rodmilla has near PetTheDog moment with her.

** Danielle tells Gustave that Rodmilla acts like she has "money to burn". Not only is it an inappropriately modern expression that seems to go as far back as the 20th century, but it is inaccurate, as paper money would not be invented until approximately 250 years later or so. Ironically, the film accurately shows the correct currency of coins made from steels and precious stones, so Danielle's line should have been "money to melt".

* ArrangedMarriage: Defied. Since neither the groom nor bride wants to go through with it, the wedding is canceled ''midway through the ceremony''.
* 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 it." 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]].

** Marguirite is also often shown smirking smugly, even though it's all due to her mother's machinations. [[spoiler:So it's ''very'' satisfying to see that smug grin wiped off her face at the end, when she realizes Danielle is a royal and now holds her life in her hands.]]

* SocietyIsToBlame: What Danielle believes.[[note]] For historical context, in the 15th and 16th century it was believed that the lower classes were ''inherently'' morally inferior to the nobility, as reflected by their low stations, coarse mannerisms, and lack of courtly graces. Sir Thomas Moore was a bit ahead of his time to argue that the lower classes weren't ''inherently'' evil or crass, but the product of their raising. Their poor manners due to poor education rather than inherent crassness, and most crimes brought on by miserable poverty created by the inherent inequality of contemporary society. Keep in mind, too, that European peasants lived in ''miserable'' poverty, filled with filth (before indoor plumbing and public garbage disposal services removed dung and garbage from people's doorsteps), squalor, disease (before penicillin and vaccines, plagues were ''very'' common), malnutrition (lower classes had very poor diets, filled with mostly bread, ale, and base vegetables), and near-constant cold and hunger, on top of having to do back-breaking labor from dawn to dusk nearly every day just to put a mouthful of crumby food on the table in shitty little huts. To live in such inescapably miserable conditions while the rich lived in obscene luxury (due to a belief in a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_chain_of_being Great Chain of Being]]) would almost certainly make petty theft excusable by modern standards.[[/note]]



** Although it is difficult to figure out how being poor teaches you to steal. The implication being that if you don't have a lot, it means you have the right to take it?

* WhatTheHellHero: Leonardo's speech to Henry after he rejects Danielle is pretty epic. May also count as a PrecisionFStrike - although the actual f-bomb is not dropped, this is the only real instance of profanity in the movie, and leaves both Henry and the audience somewhat stunned.



** A bit inaccurate. A royal should, and would put the welfare of the country long before his own marital happiness. You pay for what you get when you are royalty by devoting every bit of your personal life to the good of the land.
