*Patrick Stewart as King Henry II
*Glenn Close as Queen Eleanor
*Andrew Howard as Richard the Lionheart
*John Light as Geoffrey
*Rafe Spall as John
*Jonathan Rhys Meyers as King Philip II
*Yuliya Vysotskaya as Alais
*Clive Wood as Captain William Marshall


* Continuity: When Richard holds the knife out to Eleanor in the dungeon, the knife reverses orientation and his grip on the handle changes between shots.
* Anachronisms: Eleanor refers to syphilis in one of her speeches, an impossibility in 1183 England. Syphilis was not named such until 1530 by Hieronymus Fracastorius. Regardless of whether Europe even had the disease prior to 1200, it could not have been known by that name to the Queen.
