* EvilStepmother: ''Mary, Bloody Mary'' paints Anne Boleyn in this light. Anne is repeatedly cruel to Mary, taking away her servants and forcing her to act as a servant herself. Worst of all (in Mary's opinion), she creates a huge wedge between Mary and the father she idolizes. How much of this is TruthInTelevision will never really be known, but the real Mary definitely ''hated'' the real Anne, seeing her as the reason for her parents' marital problems. The real Anne was not overly fond of the real Mary, either; she once famously remarked that "I am her death, and she is mine."
** By stark contrast, the end of the story sees Henry VIII married to Jane Seymour, who was a kindly stepmother to both Mary and Elizabeth, and persuaded Henry to allow his daughters to return to court. Mary in particular was very fond of her and even served as chief mourner when Jane died after the birth of Edward VII.

* HollywoodHistory: In ''Mary, Bloody Mary'', the titular princess is named Princess of Wales at the age of nine. This never happened in RealLife; although Mary was invested with the arms and seal of the Prince of Wales, allowed to live in the official seat at Ludlow, and was regarded by her contemporaries as effectively ''being'' Princess of Wales, she was never given that title.

** In ''Mary, Bloody Mary'' both mother and daughter choose solitary poverty, instead of conceding to Henry VIII's demands. Devout Catholics, they refuse to accept him as head of the Church of England - nor will they accept the notion that Henry's marriage to Catherine was illegitimate, and that they have been reduced in title to "Dowager Princess of Wales" and "The Lady Mary, the King's daughter."

* ConsummationCounterfeit: In ''Patience, Princess Catherine'' Catherine of Aragon and Arthur Tudor use goats' blood as proof of consummation so they don't have the pressure of having to consummate the night of the wedding for the bedding ceremony. They never actually have sex together, but the "proof" (along with some cuddle sessions in the same chambers) causes problems when Arthur dies and she wants to marry his brother Henry, as a church doctrine prohibits the marriage of a widow to the brother of her deceased husband if the marriage was legal and had been consummated.
