Before Showtime put The Tudors on TV and Bring Up the Bodies topped the bestseller list, Shakespeare exposed the devious world of England’s royal rake.

Audiences are thrust into the political machinations and exploits of England’s most opulent king—notorious for his habit of wedding and beheading—as Anne Boleyn rises to power and Queen Katherine is ousted from her throne.
