The court of King Henry VIII is brought brilliantly to life in this My Story special. Spanning a period of 20 years, the fates of all Henry's six wives are told from the perspective of two young courtiers serving at the royal palaces at different periods.
Court intrigue swirls around Elizabeth, who knows that Princess Mary is not only her sister but her rival, and is forced at an early age to distinguish friend and foe. And as Henry VIII lies dying and her enemies close in, Elizabeth is left wondering whom she can trust. Will she survive the perils of her youth to become England’s great Tudor Queen?
At just 11 years old, the young princess Mary is sent from her native Scotland to live in the court of her future father-in-law, King Henry-II of France. She spends her time attending balls, hunting and hawking, learning Latin and fractions and music, and playing with her future husband, Francis. But all the while Mary is quite.
When the King came riding in on his big, black horse, a murmur went up, because his tunic was stitched with the words, DECLARE I DARE NOT. All the ladies were giggling behind their hands, and I asked Mama what it meant. Her face had turned quite pink and she said, \ Never mind,\ so I asked Rosanna later. She told me the words meant the King has a new love, but he dares not say her name. But everyone knows her name, of course. It is Anne Boleyn.
