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.
Visible crew/equipment: After the Baroness is stripped of her title, Danielle makes her entrance and everyone bows. When her stepmother has turned to face her, as everyone rises the actor's T-mark taped to the floor is visible to Jacqueline's right, behind the former Baroness. (Only visible on fullscreen DVD.)
Visible crew/equipment: In the market scene when Prince Henry almost sees Danielle and she throws the chicken at him, because they didn't want to injure Dougray Scott, who plays Henry, they put a glass plate in front of him so the chicken would not harm him. If you pause it right after Danielle throws the chicken, you can see the reflection of the chicken's legs towards the right of the screen.
Revealing mistake: When the Grimm brothers' carriage pulls away from the castle, after Danielle's story is told, just before the screen fades to black, a blue car with a white top (and a couple more nondescript), can be seen parked in front of the building with a brown roof, at the bottom of the screen towards the right.
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: 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: 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.
Visible crew/equipment: Near the end, when Rodmilla and her daughters are requested to appear before King Francis, in the first shot facing the king and queen, there is a beige narrow mat in front of the large patterned rug, which is not in previous or following shots, specifically used for crew/camera tracking.
Continuity mistake: While Danielle is up in the tree, when Henry is punched by the Gypsy and lands on his back, the Gypsy draws his two swords and holds them up high. However, when Henry says, "Oh no, it's you again," both of the Gypsy's swords are sheathed and his hands are down. Then, when Henry draws his own sword, the Gypsy's swords are still held up high.
Visible crew/equipment: When Danielle rushes upstairs to finish serving the breakfast, she says, "Good morning Madame, Marguerite, Jacqueline. I trust you slept well." Just as Danielle places the bowl of eggs in front of Marguerite, the actor's blue T-mark taped to the floor is visible under the table, as the camera pans around. The tape mark is positioned between the Baroness and Jacqueline, where Danielle will be standing momentarily. (Only visible on fullscreen DVD.)
