Henry VIII's obsession with siring a male heir endangers all around him: his courtiers, his government servants... He was King. She was barely 18. And in their thousand days they played out the most passionate and shocking love story in history!

The masked girl who interrupts Queen Katherine's prayers is played by an unbilled Elizabeth Taylor.

Anne: But Elizabeth is yours. Watch her as she grows; she's yours. She's a Tudor! Get yourself a son off of that sweet, pale girl if you can - and hope that he will live! But Elizabeth shall reign after you! Yes, Elizabeth - child of Anne the Whore and Henry the Blood-Stained Lecher - shall be Queen! And remember this: Elizabeth shall be a greater queen than any king of yours! She shall rule a greater England than you could ever have built! Yes - My Elizabeth Shall be Queen! And my blood will have been well spent!
