“We meet the young Henry as he struggles with his boring dad Henry VII, before becoming King himself, and going through wives like most people go through toothbrushes! Meanwhile across the world we meet the great Ottoman leader Suleiman the Magnificent in Turkey, and the mad, bad, and very dangerous to know Emperor Zhengde in China.”
