Review: The Tudors
The Tudors presents the reign and especially the marriages of King Henry the VIII. You have surely heard of him. Henry the VIII is the British king who had six wives and beheaded two of them. These small biographic details made him famous and have led producers to create a television series about him.
It generally respects the history but of course with some small modifications for a more exciting action. There are many sites where you can read about the differences between the facts presented in the series and the reality, and if you love the show, you will be curious to search more historical information.
The main role is played by Jonathan Rhys - Meyers, this being the first and largest discrepancy in the series as the true King Henry the VIII was a fat man to the end of his life, and a somewhat ugly, unattractive and short person. Jonathan is exactly the opposite. But how else would have worked the love scenes between Henry and the beautiful Anne Boleyn on the screen?
The story begins 20 years after Henry marries Catherine of Aragon, princess of Spain. Henry falls in love with Anne Boleyn and leaves behind almost everything: his religion, his faithful wife, and his daughter. Blinded by love and the sexual manipulations of Anne, Henry gets in conflict with the Pope and his people, who are devoted to Catherine. After the country switches from Catholicism to the Anglican religion, Henry marries Anne, but the marriage will not last long. Anne promises him an heir, a boy, but her end comes after she gives birth to a daughter, future Queen Elizabeth. After the decapitation of Anne, Henry falls in love with Jane Seymour, and they get engaged one day after the decapitation. Jane is very different from Henry’s first two wives. She is a simple, uneducated woman but the only wife who gives birth to a boy. Unfortunately, Jane won't be able to see his son grow as she dies at his birth.
After Jane's death, Henry marries Anne of Cleves, a German princess. The two did not know each other before their marriage, just from pictures, and when Henry first saw Anne, he didn't like her at all. Moreover, he was actually terrified by her, although the woman didn't look all that bad. Their marriage was annulled shortly after. Catherine Howard was the fifth wife of Henry and his second wife to be beheaded, on grounds of infidelity. It's interesting that Catherine was a cousin of Anne Boleyn. The King's last wife, the one who survived him, is Catherine Parr. She managed to reconcile the king with his daughters, Mary and Elizabeth.
I strongly recommend this series as it is made in an exceptional way and is very interesting. It will further tempt you into reading more about Henry’s life and about history in general.

Summary: EXCELLENT SHOW THATS HISTORICAL TOO
Review: Review: The Tudors There are plenty historically themed TV series that fail embarrassingly because they try to present things disregarding the historical truth for the sake of entertainment. Fortunately, The Tudors is not a series in this category even though there is a deviation from the historical facts in this series too. The series does not want anything else but to provide a vivid image of life at King Henryâ€™s court, Englandâ€™s famous King Henry VIII. The series introduces us into the atmosphere at the court during Henryâ€™s first years of ruling, the wild years when the King was young, seeking glory and always inclined to fall in love madly. The series is titled The Tudors because Henry VIII is part of the Tudor dynasty and the second king of England to come from the dynasty after his father Henry VII. The reason why producers decided to choose Henry VIII as the main focus of the series is because he is a leading figure in Englandâ€™s history and his political actions are well connected with his boisterous personal life. Henry VIII had no less than six wives: Catherine, Anne Boleyn that plays a prominent part in the series, Jane, Anne, Catherine and yet another Catherine. In fact, the most important political act of Henry VIII came as a result of his first marriage. As his first wife could not have children, the king wanted to divorce her and marry Anne Boleyn, a lady at the court. But as Pope Clement VII refused to allow the royal couple divorce, Henry VIII broke with the Roman Catholic Church and thus laid the foundation of the Anglican Church. Verdict: I noticed a certain lack of dynamism, which is not all that great for a TV series, but other than this The Tudors is an excellent show. The costumes, the music and everything else about The Tudors is just perfect. This is a great series to learn about the history of England as well as to enjoy some incredible love stories, conspiracy, betrayal, and executions.
