My name is King Henry VIII. King of England, King of France.
Lord of Ireland, Defender of the Faith. In my time we give presents on New Year’s Day. [Tudor music playing] My name is Anne Boleyn and in 1532,
I gave my husband the King, Henry VIII a set of Pervinian boar spears
as a New Year’s gift. [Tudor singing, music and clapping] I’m a gentleman of the Privy Chamber to the King. Dating back to the Roman festival of Saturnalia, Christmas was the time of misrule, where a Lord of misrule would be appointed
from amongst the servants, would then hold court himself. Christmas then was the only time of year
when a servant could tell his master what to do. My name is mistress Jane Seymour
and in this year 1535, it is thought extremely ill-luck to hang up
any decorations in your home before Christmas Eve. [Fool singing] One. Two. Three. [Crowd cheering and applauding] Sir. You have saved my life.
I love you. [Clapping] [Cheering]
