The third season premiere,Days after Anne Boleyn's execution, Henry VIII weds a third time, to shy, demure noblewoman Jane Seymour - a union that he and his advisors pray will result in a male heir; Henry appears to an apparently pleased court but secretly Thomas Cromwell and Lord Rich worry for their plans for a reformation. Lady Ursula Missledon arrives at court to wait upon the new queen, and is soon mistress to Sir Francis Bryan. Lady Mary is threatened with death unless she submits to her father's authority and, under guidance from the Spanish ambassador,complies. A number of Catholics, once-loyal subjects rebel to object against Henry's crusade against Catholicism and the dissolution of the monasteries, throwing Cromwell's new found confidence to the wind and Henry's rage to the boil.
