Plans are changing

Lady Donatello was mad at Queen Elizabeth, who had promised her she would be fine and would only receive a slap on the wrist from The Vatican. However now, she and her husband would be stripped of their titles and money, and sent away from court. Lady Donatella threatened to out Elizabeth to everyone, to tell them that the Queen had put her up to this. Elizabeth reassured her friend, that everything would be fine, and she would give her all the gold she and her husband needed to restart elsewhere. Lady Donatella thanked her Majesty, and returned to her room to begin packing.

However before she was able to reach her chambers, she was taken by the Queen's guards to The Tower of London. She was arrested for threatening the Queen of England, and would stay there for the remainder of her life. It is unknown, if her husband was arrested too.
