The series starts when Henry VIII is growing desperate for an heir and growing distant from his first wife and quickly moves to the period when Anne Boelyn became his obsession.

During this time Cardinal Wolsey rose to become the power behind his throne, ruling ruthlessly and nearly absolutely while Henry followed the Cardinal's advice.

When Anne plays extremely hard to get; Henry searches for a way out of his marriage to Katherine of Aragon to marry Anne.

Season three kicks off after Henry has finished with Anne and is with his new wife Jane while Robert Aske leads a pilgrimage of thousands against Cromwell's monastic reforms.
