Continuity mistake: When Danielle is with Gustave, she walks behind the four-paneled privacy screen and tosses her dress over it. In the following shots, the dress hangs over either the second panel from her left or second panel from her right, depending on the shot. (00:22:15)
At the Masquerade Ball, Danielle shows up in an angel costume and is embarrassed in front of everyone by her stepmother. Henry sends her away while she's running, she loses her glass slipper and Leonardo Da Vinci finds it and tells Henry that she is his true love and leaves her shoe with him. Danielle is sold to Pierre Le Pieu after trading her for all the things missing from the house (tapestries, candlesticks, books, etc). Henry goes to rescue Danielle and he puts the shoe on her. Danielle & Henry get married. Danielle's stepmother & evil stepsister are almost sent to the Americas because they had lied to the Queen of France. Danielle speaks for them after bowing to Danielle and they have to work. Da Vinci painted the portrait of Danielle as a wedding gift. They all live happily ever after.
Prince Henry: I have been born to privilege, and with that comes specific obligations.
Leonardo da Vinci: Horseshit.
Trivia: After Rodmilla and her daughters leave for the masque, during the next scene at the royal palace a large sculpture can be seen in the courtyard, especially in some closeups from different angles, such as when Gustave approaches Leonardo. This mythologically themed sculpture consists of a tailed figure riding upon one of two creatures holding their reins, with a ship behind them. This sculpture can be seen during the very first scene, albeit with a few changes. When Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm walk into the Grande Dame's chamber she is sitting up in an unusual type of bed. Note the bed's "headboard" and "footboard" are the ship hull (in the fullscreen version the bed's side is visible with its distinctive design), and we also see the creatures (minus their horns) with the rider's arm holding their reins at the foot of the bed. Something else to notice near the end, when Leonardo gifts the young couple the belated wedding present the room they're all in is not in the royal palace, they are in the manor, gathered in the dining room where Marguerite had burned Danielle's book Utopia.
