Tower of London

l have something in mind
l think may interest you.

l trust that we did not take you away
from your duties to our mourning Queen?

No, my lord. May l offer my sympathies
over the death of your brothers?

Thank you. l suffer
but perhaps England suffers more.

They were great men.
But history does not pause.
The pages keep turning.

You could be of great service
to your country, Mistress Shore.

l? l am of no influence at court, my lord.
You underestimate your position.
Since the death of your mother
you are the only person still alive

who was present
at the birth of the young Princes.

- That is true.
- ln the pain of birth

a woman screams, cries out,
becomes confused in her mind.

She calls out the name
of the man dearest to her.

Often husband
but sometimes lover.
- l don't understand.
- With your help, Mistress Shore,

the birthright of the young Princes
could be easily discredited.

Who would believe
such a monstrous lie? The Queen...

- The Queen would do nothing.
- No!

You defend a woman whose family
stands accused of murdering my brother?

- My lord, if l may go...
- You may not.

You ask me to take away the legal
birthright of two innocent children.

Ratcliffe, escort Mistress Shore below.
Perhaps the great persuader Gelder
can remind her of her loyalties.

No, my lord, l beg you.
lf you change your mind,
you may yet know l am a patient man.
