1535:- Henry has declared himself head of the English church though he is not recognized by the Holy Roman Emperor or his ambassador Chapuys. Anne is pregnant again and aware of Henry's interest in waiting woman Jane Seymour. Angry that the French king will not arrange a marriage for her daughter Elizabeth she demands Thomas discredits princess Mary though he refuses and visits the dying Katherine of Aragon, later sending Chapuys - to whom he has defended his policy of closing the monasteries - to administer to her. Thomas realizes the extent to which Anne hates him and fears for his safety when the king is erroneously believed to be dead which would give Anne powers as Regent. Thus he listens more intently to Lady Rochford's insinuations as , after Anne has miscarried, factions grow at court between her supporters and those of Jane Seymour. Written by don @ minifie-1
