Do English people ever ponder the insanity of their historical monarchs?

I just watched The Other Boleyn Girl. It's a very good film - I was particularly impressed with Scarlett Johansson, whose acting I haven't seen much of before. I'm just having a bit of a boggle, though, over the frequency and nonchalance with which they used to chop one another's heads off.

It's a wonder the monarchy has survived at all, really.

Proper review coming tomorrow perhaps...

Oh I LOVED this one too!!!! I actually was totally attracted to Henry (so ashamed), and the scene when he and Scarlett get it on was extra raunchy. The whole film was comp;letely fascinating though and ass soon as we finished it I wanted to watch it again.
I do love me a costume drama though LOL.

Oh don't be ashamed, I was totally into Henry too! If I was a Boleyn girl I would've shagged him in a heartbeat, and to hell with the consequences! lol.
