** The Treaty of Perpetual Peace in the pilot episode. A ridiculous application of 21st century mores to the Rennaisance, right? Nope, they actually tried it.

* DumbBlonde: Katherine Howard is portrayed [[TooDumbToLive as such]].

* DumbBlonde: Katherine Howard is portrayed [[TooDumbToLive as such]]. Mary Boleyn can be seen as this as well as her family uses her as a pawn in affairs with the king of France and then Henry. Later on, she marries a commoner without asking for permission and is subsequently disowned by her family. This may have been what saved her as she is not executed like her brother and sister.



*** In Cromwell's case, two of the conspirators against him (Sir Francis Bryan and Thomas Seymour) got the headsman drunk so Cromwell's execution would be as painful as possible (after both they are the third conspirator, Charles Brandon, are shown giddy with anticipation about the last laugh they'll derive at Cromwell's expense). It's only made worse by the fact Cromwell sees the headsman staggering, so he knows what's coming. By the third stroke - which lands ''in his shoulder blades'', even Sir Francis and Duke Brandon are disgusted. As is fellow conspirator and cold fish Edward Seymour, who wasn't involved in getting the headsman drunk. Thomas Seymour, on the other hand, seems unfazed.

Eventually someone else takes away the blade and finishes the job.

** Henry's great desire to continue the Tudor line ends up indirectly causing it to end. None of his children have children of their own because of his actions. Elizabeth tells Mary that after seeing what happened to Katherine Howard she has decided she will never marry. This is TruthInTelevision as Elizabeth really did say this at age 9.



** Thomas Boleyn. He cares only about his children as political pawns and is ready and willing to denounce them and send them to the executioner in order to save his own life.

* NoPreggerSex: Anne Boleyn turns away Henry when she's pregnant. This was really a belief back then that sex during pregnancy could harm the unborn child.



* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Henry is very scared of getting sick.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Henry is very scared of getting sick. Justified because he needs to live long enough to sire an heir.

** In a conversation between sisters Mary and Elizabeth, not long after Edward's birth, Mary tells a young Elizabeth that while their father still loves them, [[HeirClubForMen a boy is more important]]. Elizabeth, who out of her own choice would never marry and still be a competent queen, playfully replies "''I'' don't think so".

* MySisterIsOffLimits:
** Played straight with Charles Brandon and Princess Margaret. Interestingly enough, it was played more straight ''before'' Brandon and Margaret hooked up, when Henry asks Brandon to take her to Portugal. After they get married, Harry is more upset at the fact that Brandon didn't ask for his permission as king and acted behind his back than because the wife in case is his sister.
