...and parade their daughters

under his nose.

Before watching somebody else profit,

we would sooner have...

What?

- Have me bed him instead?

- No, that... That's not...

Yes.

Exactly.

The favor he would bestow upon us...

I mean upon you, if he liked you.

To be mistress of the king of England

is by no means to diminish yourself.

And after he's finished with me?

My reputation and prospects

will be ruined.

On the contrary.

Under such circumstances,

when the time came...

...to find you a husband, it would

be a marquis or a duke at least.

Will you accept the challenge?

Don't resist this.

The king and his retinue

will spend two nights here next month.

Your brother has arranged it.

It's done.

Well, I don't like it.

It'll cost a fortune to get this house...

...ready for a royal visit.

It's money we can't afford.

And what if he doesn't like her?

And what if you were to look

on the bright side, just once?

Risk nothing, you gain nothing.

Anne understands that.

Anne understands nothing.

She's just a child.

Tell me, when was it that people

stopped thinking of ambition as a sin...

...and started thinking of it

as a virtue?

That's easy for you to say.

You've had position

and wealth all your life.

Until I married you, Thomas.

And I was happy to give it up for love.

So how was it, the wedding night?

It was very satisfactory.

Really? William Carey,

a good lover.

Yes.

Oh, God. He was in rather a hurry.

- And he snores.

- No.

He got up in the middle of the night

and used a pisspot...

...by the side of the bed.

It was awful.

No.

I also have something to tell you.

Last night,

our father put his trust in me...

...and gave me a commission.

Tell, tell.

To divert the king.

The king of England himself,

on his visit.
