Transcript of Media Representations
He really died of an illness en route to London at Leicester Abbey, to answer the charges of treason held against him. Histo-tainment Is the risk of using inaccurate information outweighed by the chance of sparking interest in the younger generation
"Crazy, and hooked, indeed. Henry VIII is perhaps the most famous/infamous king in the history of kings"-Maria Puente Finally, why does historical media depict a romanticized version of history? Sources http://www.thetudorswiki.com/page/The+Tudors+Historical+Inaccuracies+Season+1
http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2010-04-08-tudors08_CV_N.htm Extra-ordinariness Dr Borman, also the Heritage Education Trust chief executive, praised the show saying "Yes, the scriptwriters may have taken liberties with the facts, but they have also succeeded in re-creating the drama and atmosphere of Henry VIII's court, with its intrigues, scandals and betrayals." Henry VIII, who died in 1547, was thought to have eventually weighed more than 127 kg (20 stone), with a 54-inch waist, and is rumored to have needed a hoist to lift him on to his horse towards the end of his life. "I get letters from teachers from Wales to the mid-west saying that their kids want to talk about The Tudors. We try to make these events living again."- Hirst "As a dramatist, trying to create an effect you know is true, you get to the truth by telling a little lie" - Michael Hirst Pro's

It's impossible to be entirely accurate http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/6005582/BBC-period-show-The-Tudors-is-historically-inaccurate-leading-historian-says.html
Sex Appeal It is impossible to be entirely accurate about who slept with who at what time. It is also ridiculous to show everything that happened in court because that would be boring.
