In the third season, Henry marries for the third time but his honeymoon is spoiled because of the beginning of the insurrection against the authority of the new format. Part of the rebels is defeated in Lincolnshire but strengthened in Yorkshire, led by Robert Askey and Lord Darcy. Pope calls on the Spanish and French monarchs to support uprising in England for the purpose of repairing the old Catholic traditions. In the third episode we'll see Henry personally is trying to suppress insurrection. He persuades the rebel leaders to stop the war in return for promising to meet their demands in York. He arranges for the Church to recognize the new Protestant faith. Fearing an invasion of the Spaniards and the French, Henry is looking for support from other European countries and at the insistence of his minister, Thomas Cromwell, marries princess Anne of Cleves-Protestant. The king did not like New wife, and soon there is divorce, followed by a execution of Cromwell.
The Tudors season 3 episodes list:
King Henry marries for the third time, taking as his queen the demure noblewoman Jane Seymour. A growing number of his subjects protest the king's decision to abandon the Catholic Church.
The uproar over the king's break with the Catholic Church turns into a full-blown rebellion that comes to be known as "The Pilgrimage of Grace." Immobilized by an old jousting injury, Henry sends Charles Brandon to deal with the uprising and focuses his attention on the Lady Ursula Misseldon.
Henry reconciles with his estranged daughters Mary and Elizabeth in time for the Christmas holidays, but betrays and brutally suppresses the rebellion against him after making conciliatory promises to the uprising's leaders.
The leaders of the Pilgrimage of Grace uprising are put to death, but Brandon is disturbed by the cruelty and mercilessness of the suppression; Henry celebrates the birth of a son but his joy is short-lived as Queen Jane dies within days.
Henry remains in seclusion while mourning the queen's death, an opportunity that enemies of the crown seize to murder several friends of the court; Cromwell is disturbed when Henry doesn't resist his new church's similarities to Catholicism.
Matchmaking begins in earnest as Cromwell schemes to secure the Reformation by marrying Henry to a Protestant wife - but the king's marital reputation precedes him; the condition of Henry's wounded leg turns life-threatening.
War looms with France and Spain aligning against England with backing from Rome, so Henry agrees to a politically fortuitous marriage with Anne of Cleves (Joss Stone), a plain and unsophisticated German aristocrat he has never met.
Henry moves swiftly to annul his loveless marriage to Anne of Cleves, and beds a new mistress, 17-year-old Katherine Howard; Princess Mary falls in love with Duke Philip of Bavaria; Cromwell's fall from favor is sudden and dramatic.
