Continuity mistake: When Danielle is climbing down the tree, in the overhead shot the Gypsy is holding the sword in his right hand with Danielle's dress held up high on the sword tip as he thanks her, but next shot he's gripping the dress in his raised left hand. (More visible on fullscreen DVD.)
Continuity mistake: When Prince Henry first approaches Leonardo da Vinci and then chases after the thief, the horse he rides on is dark bay in color and has no markings on its face. After he shouts, "Ugly peasant bastard!" in Henry's next close-up he rides a black horse with a white 'L' shape mark between its eyes.
Continuity mistake: Prince Henry rides up to the manor to return the horse to the Baroness, and when Marguerite and Jacqueline stumble over themselves to greet the Prince, Marguerite's long hair braid ends up over her head beside her cheek, which she promptly flips to the back of her head. Yet, this braid reappears and disappears repeatedly in the following shots.
Continuity mistake: At the manor, when Leonardo da Vinci hugs Danielle and says, "Think of it as a belated wedding present, Your Highness," the distinctive wood chair (more are seen all over the manor) is under the side window behind him, also visible as Danielle takes Henry's hands and pulls him towards the alcove with the two windows. Next shot, however, that chair is gone from behind Danielle (where the side window is) and there is only a wood table in front of the center window.

Continuity mistake: When Prince Henry and Marguerite are touring the marketplace, just before they arrive at Danielle's stall, Marguerite gets Henry to feed her some chocolate. While the shot is on her, you can see his hand reaching for some chocolate. The shot switches to his face, and then back to her, where his hand goes for the chocolate again.
Continuity mistake: After Marguerite tastes the chocolate, when Henry walks over to Louise and Paulette, Louise holds an abundant armful of corn ears in the shot facing the women. In the shot facing Henry, as she turns her body there is nothing in her left arm, but then the corn is back for her to toss.
Continuity mistake: When Henry stops the wedding and allows the Spanish princess to run to her real love, there's a shot where he's taking off his cape. When it switches to the shot with Henry in the background as she's hugging her real love, Prince Henry is just starting to take off his cape again.
Continuity mistake: Just before Danielle is sold, she has a conversation with her evil stepmother in a narrow pathway in the garden. In the shots of the stepmother speaking, her hands are on her hips but when the shot changes to Danielle, so we see the back of the stepmother, the stepmother's hands are not on her hips anymore until the shot returns to her front. This goes back and forth a few times.
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Danielle is swimming, in the shot where DaVinci walks past her and says, "It looks like rain," the bottoms of his 'shoes' are flat, but in the shot where he and Danielle are exiting the water they have a fin shaped bottom. This also proves he was walking in a shallow pool of water.
Continuity mistake: When Marguerite threatens to toss 'Utopia' into the fireplace, she holds the book out to her left, where the fireplace and its roaring fire are located. When Danielle hands over the glass slippers, Marguerite moves her arm from her side and proceeds to forcefully throw the book down directly in front of her (between Marguerite and Danielle, who face each other). Odd though, how in the next close-up 'Utopia' is shown having been tossed straight into the fire to burn, as Danielle screams.
Continuity mistake: Before Auguste De Barbarac arrives home, from the upstairs window young Danielle is speaking to young Gustave, who is down below. The window/frame/hinge differ between exterior shots facing Danielle and the interior shots facing the courtyard. The wallpaper is an entirely different print as well, and the silver pitcher does its own vanishing act.
