 SIX QUEENS HENRY VIII - Drama-documentary series in which historians bring to life the scandal, romance and betrayal that characterized Henry VIII's six marriages.

Divorced, beheaded, died. Henry VIII is the most infamous monarch in English history. Famously he married six times over his 36 year reign. The six queens were formidable individuals. Some were ambitious, some brave, some ruthless and between them they shaped the man who began as a Renaissance prince, became a monster and ended a regretful old man. In turn they shaped England itself.

Presented jointly by two young historians, Suzannah Lipscomb and Dan Jones, this is an original and enlightening look at the real people at the center of the action during one of the most turbulent, passionate and violent periods in English history.

IN THIS EPISODE: Jane Seymour gives Henry the son and heir he craves, but dies days after giving birth; Henry is convinced to marry again, but he discovers too late that Holbein's painting of Anne of Cleves is deceptive.
