Birthright and power after Hentry VIII's death
Reader | Boca Raton, FL | 01/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Well, we all more or less know the story of Henry VIII and his reign. Most of it is attributed to his many wives and his effort to separate England from the Catholic Church. But once King (Henry VIII and his son Edward) died, court had to deal with counry that is divided by church, religion and potential fight on who will inherit the throne. Lady Jane was Henry's nice, daughter of his siter Frances. Young and well educated, she is an idealist who is being used for political purposes by the court advisors and her own parents. Without being groomed for power and reign, she is ill equipped to lead the country that is in trouble politically, economically and spiritually. Newly married, she is deeply influenced by her husband and her own strong will. It does not take long before Mary, her cousin and Henry's daughter with his marriage with Catherine of Aragon of Spain takes action to regain her crown and her birthright to reign Englad, Ireland and France. With the help of the Spanish Army, Mary reclaims her throne and eventually executes her cousin Lady Jane, pretender to the throne. Young Helena Bonham Carter gives wonderful performance of a young woman (Lady Jane) from aristocratic family, ill prepared for the duties her family laid out for her in unprecedented political coup that lasted only 9 days and took lives of most of her family, including her father and her husband."
