- Catherine of Aragon at the Legatine Court. Extra points for being a CMOA in history too; the speech was cut down and translated into modern English, but was essentially the same thing said by the real Catherine at the Blackfriars trial.
- Anne Seymour in the last episode, when she calmly informs the feared bishop Gardiner that he will not serve that warrant and why.
- Katherine Parr, also in the last episode when she manages to convince Henry that her religious debates with him were meant only to distract him from his painful leg ulcer, thereby saving her own skin--which no previous wife managed outside of Anne (see Extreme Doormat). Again, extra points for being Truth in Television.
- Thomas More's whole execution. Talk about Face Death with Dignity.
- Anne Stanhope blackmailing Bishop Gardiner, Katherine Parr convincing Henry not to kill her over her religion, and Edward Seymour decking Bishop Gardiner in the series finale.
- Also in the finale, Henry is haunted by the ghosts of his first three Queens, none of whom are particularly comforting to him. Extra points for Jane accusing him of pushing their son to an early death, since of all three, Jane would be expected to be on Henry's side.
- Anne Boleyn's execution in season 2, when she faces her death with such dignity and poise despite earlier breakdowns
- Earlier, Thomas More's own execution is the epitome of Face Death with Dignity. Hell, everything about that man was dignified
