The Tudors is an Irish/Canadian dramatic series about the reign and marriages of King Henry VIII. Starring an International Cast including as guest stars Peter O'Toole and Sam Neil. A Cocktail of Sex and Violence, the series in 4 Seasons required extensive historical research and reconstruction with richly designed costumes and sets to illustrate the life and times of the King who despite his cruel reign also greatly shaped England into one of the World's major and respected Powers.

Synopsis of the 4 Seasons:

Season One of The Tudors chronicles the period of Henry VIII's reign in which his effectiveness as King is tested by international conflicts as well as political intrigue in his own court, while the pressure of fathering a male heir compels him to reject his wife Katherine of Aragon in favour of Anne Boleyn. He also has a string of affairs, and fathers an illegitimate son, who later dies.

Season Two finds Henry as the head of the Church of England, the result of his break with the Catholic Church over its refusal to grant him a divorce from Katherine. During his battle with Rome, he secretly marries a pregnant Anne. Anne's own failure to produce a son dooms her as Henry's attention shifts toward Jane Seymour.

Season Three focuses on Henry's marriages to Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves, the birth of his son Edward VI, his ruthless suppression of the Pilgrimage of Grace, the downfall of Thomas Cromwell, and the beginnings of Henry's relationship with the "dangerous" Katherine Howard.

Season Four focuses on Henry's ill-fated marriage to Katherine Howard, his uncommonly successful final marriage with Katherine Parr, an attempted invasion of France and the question of the kingdom's leadership after Henry's death.

The Tudors

by John on

The Tudors is actually a very well-made series that more-or-less adheres to historical fact.  Lots of attractive women, much nudity and sex.  In a word: entertaining.

I actually have a "Royalty on Screen" suggestion for you:

Dae Jang Geum (Korea), (Jewel in the Palace)

Serial, 54 episodes. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dae_Jang_Geum

This was a big hit across Asia, Australia and New Zealand. IRIB in Iran even broadcast it!

I just watched all 54 episodes on DVDs. I must be getting soft in my old age, I actually enjoyed it. :)
