Things I Like: King Henry VIII (The Tudors)

King Henry VIII seated next to Catherine of Aragon The Tudors TV SERIES

Like the real King Henry VIII, this fictional portrayal has his fair share of issues. He’s not a very good husband (a common trait later in life haha), but he does seem to be a good person for the most part at first.

One of the few moments you see him truly sad and not angry-sad is the death of his illegitimate son. While this did happen in reality, his son was much older when he died.

King Henry VIII divorce trail Parliament The Tudors TV SERIES

I thought they show did a good job at showing the arguments Henry had to divorce Catherine. All the drama in the Catholic church.

He wasn’t a very good King after all of that.

Especially as his break with the Catholic church divided his people so harshly. Henry is only good when he likes his wife apparently.

I might not like Henry as a person so much, but Jonathan Rhys Meyers did an amazing job as King Henry VIII. Even if he didn’t want to gain weight and be ugly as heck to make the role seem more beliveable.
