With its mix of family drama, sex and violence, Britain's Tudor dynasty (1485-1603) has long excited the interest of filmmakers and moviegoers. Since the birth of movie-making technology, the lives and times of kings Henry VII, Henry VIII, and Edward VI and queens Mary I, Jane Grey and Elizabeth I have remained popular cinematic themes. From 1895's The Execution of Mary Stuart to 2011's Anonymous, this comprehensive filmography chronicles every known movie about the Tudor era, including feature films; made-for-television films, mini-series, and series; documentaries; animated films; and shorts. From royal biographies to period pieces to modern movies with flashbacks or time travel, this work reveals how these films both convey the attitudes of Tudor times and reflect the era in which they were made.Still outside, Henry tells Anne he has summoned the French ambassador and plans to nula lify the threat from the Empire. He adds ... her jewels, tries to seduce her lady Elizabeth Darrell, and leaves a love poem in her pockets. At court ... He gives her the Queena#39;s jewels, and she thanks him with manual sexual stimulation.
