Frances is the female spelling of the name.
** [[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.

* CallBack: Danielle is the only one to see her father collapse from his fatal heart attack, because she's the only one to watch him ride away, explaining that "It's a tradition - he always waves at the gate." Ten years later, when she goes to the ball, the servants stop Leonardo from going to see Gustave's paintings by exclaiming, "It's a tradition!" Sure enough, at the gate, Danielle waves to them from the carriage.

The movie skips ahead ten years, to when Danielle is eighteen. Their estate has fallen onto hard times and things keep "disappearing," to the anger of the Baroness. Danielle has, of course, become a virtual house slave to the family, but takes comfort in the familial love she shares with the servants and the kindness she receives from Jacqueline. One morning, she is gathering apples in the estate's orchard when she spies someone stealing the horse of her late father. Enraged, she chucks apples at him, ultimately causing him to fall. It turns out to be the Crown Prince of France, running away from a father who wants to [[ArrangedMarriage marry him off]]. To buy her silence, he gives her a great amount of gold.

** Not really, since the Valois line, Henry's dynasty, ended with his daughter. Louis XVI was of the Bourbon line. It's still possible descent-wise, given royal inter-marriages, but not through the direct royal line.
