Episode 2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Buckingham is about to be arrested, the camera is looking directly at him. At this angle, his black fur collar is flipped up, covering the neck of his white shirt. When the scene changes to a wide shot behind him, the collar is folded down.



Episode 2 - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: In episode 2 during the scene when the king's son is born, it appears that the baby has been born for less than a few minutes, but when he is held up it is plain to see that his navel has healed instead of being freshly cut as it should be after the birth.

Question: Why does everyone call Jonathan R-M 'Harry'? Isn't he Henry VIII?

Chosen answer: While Harry can be a given name, it is also a standard "informal" version of the name Henry. For example, in the UK Royal Family, the younger son of Prince Charles, officially named Prince Henry, is commonly referred to as Prince Harry.


Matters of State - S2-E7

Question: Does anyone know the name and composer of the piece of music being played when Henry and Anne are dancing (interspersed with their passionate sex scene)? It sounds like Henry asks for A Valta but I'm not sure.


Chosen answer: Henry asks for a volta which was a type of dance as well as the general type of music played for it. It would be like requesting a waltz or tango.
