Corrected entry: When the royal family plus entourage comes through the town to meet the French king, in bird's-eye views Henry is marching alone in front, but in close-ups someone else is at his side. (00:20:40)


Correction: I thought so too at first, but Henry always has Eleanor at his side. They are only shown in close-ups. The bird's-eye view is showing Phillip of France, who is walking alone.


Corrected entry: The air in Henry's bedroom is so cold that there is a layer of ice on the washing bowl, but his breath makes no clouds. (00:11:30)


Correction: It is often cold (below freezing) and yet breath won't be seen unless other conditions are just right for it. It is a matter of humidity, not just temperature.

Continuity mistake: When Eleanor comes to free Henry's sons from the dungeon, the officer who is accompanying her stabs the guard in the throat. When he pulls the dagger out there's blood only on one side and nothing on the straw when the guard is kicked across the floor. (01:53:20)
