* IdenticalGrandson: Inevitable in a show with all the variously interrelated characters of history played by just a few actors, but particularly noticeable in the Stuart dynasty, with Baynton playing ''all'' the Jameses and Charleses yet shown (plus cousin Rupert).

* RhetoricalRequestBlunder: A sketch involves Henry II explaining to HHTV's ''Royalty Today'' correspondent how he accidentally murdered his friend Thomas Becket in one of history's most famous examples of this trope. Thing is, Henry's still being followed by the three "idiot knights" whose over-literal interpretation of "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest!?" led to Becket's death. This becomes a new and immediate problem when, pressed for more details, Henry jokingly asks if no one will rid him of this troublesome interviewer...

While the original incarnation of the show formally ended with the fifth series, a reboot involving a (largely) brand new cast, format and production team is slated to air later in 2015. Meanwhile, the original core performers plan to continue working together as a troupe for the forseeable future, writing and starring in both a new TV project (the family fantasy comedy ''Series/{{Yonderland}}'') and feature film (''Film/{{Bill}}'', a spoof on the origins of William Shakespeare). Also, a live-action series of "Horrible Science" is in the works.

* StealthPun: The Owain Glyndwr song is a pastiche of "Delilah" by TomJones -- however, when Owain mentions being given the title of Prince... of Wales, it segues into a pastiche of "Kiss", which was also performed by Jones, but originally by Prince.

* ActionGirl: You do ''not'' want to mess with Boudicca. Or for that matter several of the other female characters. The show actually makes something of a point of celebrating this trope, as a way of compensating for the fact that most of their subject matter is male-oriented.
