The movie is a sample one stage of Tudors dynasty, Henry VIII was the successor of Henry VII, with him The Tudor’s control began. In the movie are showing many problems that Henry had with the Religion, assistants and people he has a problem with Thomas More, one of the Cancellors with refused to attend the coronation of Anne Boleyn, because he didn´accept tha Henry divorce of Catalina of Aragon because he was interested in a beautiful young woman only she could give a son.

3.Reaction to the film:

We really liked the movie because it showed the true story behind a king, a king who was shown in its most human, with a constant obsession to get a son to continue his legacy, the subjugation of the English woman and a woman that broke with the attitude that women should show against the kings of the time, a woman who never remained silent even when her husband sought to remove all the methods of his way, an obsession that ended with a long history of love and hate.

Finally, the death of a woman who fought to preserve the rights of women and her daughter, a woman used and then discarded.
