"They have the wrong sisterr of Henry VIII married to Charles Brandon"
Oh, Libby, it's worse than that. They have combined both sisters (Mary and Margaret) into one character named Margaret. IRL, Margaret married the King of Scotland, and Mary wed the elderly King of France, and later, Henry's lifelong pal, Charles Brandon. In the series, this single sister marries (and murders!) the elderly King of Portugal and then Brandon. When the series first aired, there was some buzz about the producers having been afraid we poor feeble-minded viewers would have gotten "confused" by two "Princess Mary"s - Henry's sister and daughter. But they didn't have a problem with the multitude of characters named Thomas (More, Cromwell, Wolsey, Cranmer, Tallis, Boleyn, Culpeper, Howard, Wyatt)!
On a forum I participate on where we talk about TV, we dubbed this combined sister "Marygret".
