I think she did get the sweating sickness and Thomas Tellis was a real person, not sure if he was gay though! I don't know about the Madge thing, I suppose if it did happen it wouldn't be written down anywhere for us to know!

That's a pretty good likeness! I found the character frustrating, though. He just seemed to wander in and out of plotlines that didn't seem to connect. The gay affair, his apparent preference for one identical twin who then dies, and then telling the survivor it was because he had a premonition her sister would die. He then gets together with the other sister! I kept asking myself what this had to do with anything.

The Madge Shelton storyline is true in that in 1535 a worried Anne did manoeuvre her cousin into Henry's arms so that at least Henry had a mistress who was sympathetic to Anne. Anne was in such a precarious position that she constantly worried about who Henry would take as a mistress.
