Queen Elizabeth

Elizabeth Tudor is the Queen of England and Ireland. She is the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. She is Mary I of Scotland's first cousin once removed, and are only a couple of years apart. Elizabeth's father was the younger brother of Mary Stuart's grandmother, Margaret Tudor. After the death of her sister Mary, Elizabeth became sole ruler, and Queen of England at the age of 25.

Early LifeEdit

She was the daughter of Henry VIII of England and his second wife, Anne Boleyn. Elizabeth was Anne's first and only child. She was born a princess of England, but after her mother's death, her father declared her illegitimate. She spent months in The Tower of London during her sister, Mary Tudor's rule. There's also Robert Dudley, she knows him since they were children and become lovers but when they lost their baby they broke up and there also was the lie that lord Dudley killed his first wife in angry. So he was a shame for England and for the Queen

Season 1Edit

Her sister ordered an attempt on the life of Mary Stuart at The Convent. It failed, and the Scottish Queen was sent to French Court.

Mary Stuart talked with Simon Westbrook, rumors that Queen Mary Turdor was ill, and her sister Princess Elizabeth might be next in line for the throne. But many think Elizabeth is illegitimate and a bastard born. And the next rightful heir to the English throne should be Mary Stuart.

Diane de Poitiers used the case of Princess Elizabeth as an example of a bastard child being declared legitimate, saying that many Kings in Europe were doing the same.

King Henry II anounced the Tudor Queen was dying. She had not named her successor but many believe the rightful heir to the English throne should be Queen Mary Stuart. The second, England's queen dies, King Henry wanted Mary Stuart to make her claim. Her marriage to Prince Francis would be moved up as it would strengthen her claim, and would show Europe that Mary Stuart had the might of France at her side.

King Henry II stated a new condition of Scotland and France's marriage alliance is that Mary Stuart delivered England to France. Support from The Vatican made him think he could get it, However, Queen Catherine cautioned Princess Elizabeth would have support too. Armies she'd been gathering for years. Laying claim to England could cost Mary Stuart her head, as it did Lady Jane Grey.

When the English Queen dies, so would Henry the VIII's legitimate line, as Mary Stuart is his next relation by blood, because Elizabeth is King Henry VIII's daughter by Anne Boleyn and her parents' marriage was never recognized by The Catholic Church, because in God's eyes, she doesn't even exist. Elizabeth is Protestant and The Pope doesn't want to lose a nation to Protestantism. However, a Scottish Queen on the English throne, a daughter born of one of Henry's wives, dismissed would cause uprisings and wars.

King Henry told Mary Stuart that she would lay claim to England once the English Queen, Mary I was dead.

Marie de Guise wants Mary Stuart to go after England, and Scotland wants her on the throne of England. They know it's a risk, but less with Prince Francis at her side. Scotland wants Mary Stuart to wed the next King of France without delay.

The Vatican supports Mary Stuart's claim to the English throne. However, Mary Stuart would only agree if Sebastian was named King Henry's heir. Mary and Sebastian's ascent to the throne would not be official until The Pope agreed. King Henry decided to go to Rome himself, to ensure the marriage of future King and Queen of France, Scotland, and England.

Unfortunately, Queen Catherine would never agree to an annulment, thus her execution was scheduled, and Henry was preparing to mary Diane de Poitiers. When King Henry dies, Bash would become Wing. If Bash is survived by King Henry and Queen Catherine's children, the line of succession will revert back to King Henry's sons by Catherine.

Mary Stuar questioned if her cousin Princess Elizabeth's life was in danger for being born a bastard.

A massager arrived at the French Kingdom and announced the death of the Queen of England, claiming that she had not declared a successor before her death. King Henry claimed England is Mary Stuart's by bloodline and insisted she lay claim to it immediately, or Princess Elizabeth will seize it. King Henry insisted if Mary Stuart wanted to take England, should need the next king of France by her side, and demanded she would wed one of his sons that night.

After Mary and Francis' Wedding it was discovered that Mary Tudor had not passed away, and was still alive ruling England. The whole think was a play her Mary's mother, Marie de Guise.

Queen Mary Tudor died and named her younger sister, Princess Elizabeth the new Queen of England.

Mary Stuart wrote a letter to Queen Elizabeth, stating that she wanted peace with her cousin and her country, and for that, she's willing to relinquish her claim on England forever. For if Mary Stuart staked her claim, thousands of people would die to try and make it good. Either Elizabeth or Mary Stuart would end up losing their heads. Mary Stuart was content with being the Queen of Scotland and future Queen of France.

King Henry said they'd take time to celebrate Calais, but mobilization had already begun. He wants to attack England within the week, and slay Queen Elizabeth and put Mary on the throne.

Queen Elizabeth was informed by her spies that Mary Stuart was seen wearing the English colours. An indication that she was going to reach for the English Crown.

Season 2Edit

Elizabeth sent imposters to France to impersonate the King and Queen of France. They were to collect tax-payers money and set their homes on fire to anyone that could not, thus creating hatred for the royal couple among their own citizens. Elizabeth wanted to ruin Queen Mary's name and reputation for wearing the English Coat of Arms, for all but declaring herself England's Queen.

Queen Elizabeth and The Tudor Dynasty are making a strong defence against Scotland and France, believing King Francis and Queen Mary to be getting ready to try and take England and put a Catholic Queen on the throne, ever since Mary put on Elizabeth's Coat of Arms.

Queen Elizabeth - Burn

Queen Elizabeth met with Catherine de' Medici in London England. After a few short words of fake pleasantries, the French Queen offered to help the English Queen with the problem of her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots.

Season 3Edit

After much debate, and not wanting to lose Robert above all else, Elizabeth announces to her council that she believes Robert Dudley is not qualified enough to be the English ambassador to France. He angrily confronts her about making a fool of him in front of everyone and storms away. When they're alone, they argue and Elizabeth claims that his marriage is the real problem. She tasks Nicholas with being the English ambassador to France and spying on the French royals. [1]

Elizabeth is talking with William Cecil. He notes she been tense ever since Mary's half brother, James, refused to push for her abdication, ruining their plan.

Elizabeth and Robert are fooling around in a cell. Robert remarks how he remembers when the walls of a prison would have had you cowering in fear. Elizabeth adds how another one of her fears was losing her head, like her mother.

Elizabeth's privy Counsil informed her, her collusion with Catherine de Medici has placed England in the middle of an international crisis. The Vatican knows England sponsored the nobles sent to slander Mary Stuart, a plan the two Queen's hatched. And what the Vatican knows, Spain knows. King Philip views the attack on Mary as an attack on all Catholic monarchs, and threatened to walk away from the trade agreement they have spent months negotiating. To amends their situation, Her Majesty will give testimony speaking to the circumstances surrounding Catherine's time in England. Testimony that clears England's queen of any involvement.

Don Carlos tells Elizabeth that she is a queen, and as your husband, he would become king, he wants a crown and is tired of waiting for his father's.

Robert Dudley returns to Elizabeth to confront her about the job she gave his wife. Elizabeth vows never to marry if she can't have Dudley and they end up sleeping together. Again. He returns to his chambers to find Amy Dudley there alone. He suggests they do not discuss Elizabeth.

A doctor diagnoses Amy with melancholia and blames it on the fact that she and her husband do not have sex. She seduces the doctor so that he'll diagnose Amy with a mass instead so that Dudley's affections will return to her. His course of treatment involves a sojourn in Cornwall with a physician there, which will take Dudley away from Elizabeth.

Dudley breaks the news to Elizabeth that he must go to Cornwall with his wife, which means their dalliance must end. Elizabeth believes Amy's illness is fate's way of telling them they can be together, but Amy has to die first.

Queen Elizabeth bought up how Gideon Blackburn used her, made her care for him. But he couldn't make her fall in love with him, because she were in love with Robert Dudley. Which he reported back to her half-sister, Mary Tudor. Gideon was Mary Tudor's eyes and ears, sent to inform on Elizabeth, the greatest threat to her crown. So she ripped Robert from his cell and Elizabeth's side.

Dudley finds Amy Dudley and tells her that he's seeking a divorce and he'll continue making sure she has the best care, but he cannot stay married to her any longer. Amy warns Robert if he tries to divorce her, she will tell the world that Elizabeth is with child, and she will lose her throne. Betting they'll find a way to take her head, just like her mother. in return, Robert threatens to kill his wife and locks her away.

Elizabeth and Dudley discuss his wife, Amy, and what they might do about her. They agree to lock her away in an insane asylum which will give him grounds for divorce before she's able to expose Elizabeth's pregnancy. Amy jumps from the upper balcony before either of them have a chance to enact their plan. William tells Elizabeth that it looks as if Amy and Dudley struggled before she died, which makes him look like a murderer.

Elizabeth and Dudley meet to discuss Amy's death and how they can move forward after it. They both discover that Amy has killed herself so that they will pay the price.

Mary Stuart and Gideon Blackburn are both frustrated with Elizabeth. Elizabeth holds his daughter hostage, and then she keeps changing the price on her freedom. Mary tells him Gideon's spy Jeffrey will be returning to England soon, let him bring news to Elizabeth that she, the lonely, brokenhearted Queen has been seduced Gideon. Convince her that Gideon controls her, and he'll have something to bargain with, to force Elizabeth to let him see Agatha.

Weeks later, Gideon tells her the Queen is happy. Jeffrey reported their evening together, and Elizabeth's considering dates he might be allowed to travel home. Elizabeth tells William Cecil that her inability to be with the one she loves doesn't mean no one else cannot be. She sends Agatha to her father, Gideon Blackburn in France and releases Lola's family.

Weeks later, Mary tells Gideon she received news in a letter from Lola, Elizabeth is keeping her word. His daughter is coming to France. Gideon kisses Mary after she delivers the news to him.

Elizabeth wants to stop Mary Stuart marriage to Don Carlos. England's spies tell them Don Carlos left Austria under a cloud, and if his ridiculously pious father, finds out, even is they have to make it up, as they don't know for sure. Elizabeth ordered a letter to be written up, stating he end his courtship of Mary and leave France by dawn, or his father, the king, will learn of his secret.

William Cecil informed Elizabeth, Mary of Scots' closest friend, her lady Lola, had agreed to be her hostage in exchange for her family's release, and she was on a boat headed for England's shores.

Later, Greer told Mary Stuart The Spanish alliance from her marriage to Don Carlos would empower her and their nation against Elizabeth, and having Spain would allow her to bring Lola and her family home alive.

While talking with Lady Lola Elizabeth mentioned how Royals have such a strange sense of family. Her father, King Henry VIII cut off her mother, Anne Boleyn's head. her sister, Mary Tudor jailed her as a threat to her rule. And how Lola has King Francis's bastard son, John Philip.

Elizabeth tells Robert Dudley their baby died in a forced miscarriage. Someone did this to her, out of hate. Someone emboldened, knowing the entire country felt the same way. She changes the subject, to how William Cecil told her the tribunal ended in a deadlock, and that he's free. There was enough doubt that they didn't put him on trial, but it's not quite the same as being innocent. But there was doubt about Amy Dudley's odd behaviour. Others saw it. He is free but free to be with Elizabeth. The people still hate them. They blame Robert for tarnishing her reputation. Linking her to Amy's death. Robert insists they have to make them forget it, and she can't do that with him by her side. Elizabeth cries Amy is dead, their baby is gone, and it is a fact she will grieve for the rest of her life. Robert promises he will always love her. Always.

Gideon Blackburn warned Mary Stuart that Queen Elizabeth would see her raising a Catholic army as an act of aggression. Even if it was to stop John Knox. As The Vatican has been determined to reclaim England ever since she turned the country Protestant after Mary Tudor her Catholic sister died.

Robert Dudley tells Elizabeth, how sorry he is over Lady Lola's beheading. knowing she'd grown very fond of her. Elizabeth says she let her get close because she was lonely. She reminds him it's been months since his wife's death, and since the assassination attempt on her life, the nation's sympathies will be with her. Robert eventually reveals his has re-married, Lettice Knollys.

Season 4Edit

Elizabeth and Gideon discused the events surrounding Lola's execution. Gideon Blackburn asked if they gain any information in Scotland, but Queen Mary maintained her innocence. Elizabeth said Lola admitted the order came from Mary. Gideon wondered if Lola was wrong, used by someone. Elizabeth added Lord Narcisse was imprisoned in The Tower of London and refused to speak, but John Philip and his nanny were missing. Lola had probably planned an escape for after her death, and they were back in France.

Elizabeth informed Narcisse Lola's son is safe, and he's at the castle, being tended to. Narcisse tells her John Knox was responsible. Lola thought she was following Mary's orders, but she was following his.

Lady Keira and Lord Darnley want to get married. However, Lady Keira is promised to Lord White by her family. When Lord Darnley is summoned to English Court by Queen Elizabeth she brokers a deal with him. [2]

Elizabeth summoned Lord Narcisse to talk about John Knox. Elizabeth did not want him to assassinate Knox for Lola, not until she got proof of who her enemies were. The nanny was her only witness and is dead, and she had no proof of that crime, so she needs Knox to plot another. Promising if he could entrap Knox, she'd give him his freedom. Adding once she had the evidence, he can have Knox.

Darnley promises not to marry Queen Marry of Scotland, and in return, Queen Elizabeth will pay off Keira's dowry to her family so she and Lord Darnley can marry. However, before the sum could be paied in secret by a single horseman, Lord Narcisse arranged his murder. [3]

Elizabeth and Gideon brought up Mary Stuart, and Gideon Blackburn asked to marry Mary, with Elizabeth's blessing. Gideon insisted Mary was not like her, or even Catherine. She never angled to be Queen, and was crowned at six days old, and it had cost her everything. Her husband, King Francis, whom she adored, and her best friend, Lola. She only wanted is to be happy and have a family, now power.

The Archduke Ferdinand met with Elizabeth for a private sit down. He expressed his desire for a real relationship if they both agreed to wed. Elizabeth agreed and reminded him not to go public with their possible engagement until all the details were worked out between their two countries. The next day they met in the gardens where he invited her for a scenic carriage ride that night.

Gideon Blackburn asked Elizabeth is what she told his daughter, Agatha Blackburn about heaven came so easily to her was because it's what she told yourself as a child. Elizabeth confirmed her father, King Henry VIII wanted little to do with her, and her mother, Anne Boleyn was killed before she turned three. Later her sister, Mary Tudor locked her in The Tower of London and accused her of treason, and she never knew if they were coming for her next. So she told herself that story so she wouldn't be afraid.

Later Elizabeth confided Lola's death still haunted her When she was brought to execution, she had a look in her eyes she will never forget, and Jane had that same look. She that is why she let her live.

The Archduke and Queen Elizabeth's engagement would be officially announced in a few weeks.

Elizabeth and Gideon were discovered kissing by Jane. Elizabeth yelled she cannot risk her reputation. She was the "Virgin Queen" and her marriage to Archduke Ferdinand would be her best protection against her enemies, all would be undone if Jane lived to speak. Gideon Blackburn tried to persuade her, because they spent a moment together, an innocent girl, a loyal servant, had to die. Elizabeth asked what were innocence and loyalty, Lola was both, and she conspired to have her killed. Lola actively betrayed her, but still Lola's death haunted her. Not long after, Gideon agreed to take Jane to the woods and when he returned, they'd return to court. But he added, when it's done, she would not feel safer, and after Lola died, she only felt more alone.

Elizabeth and Archduke Ferdinand consummated their relationship and are officially engaged. He also reveals he is the nephew to King Philip of Spain.

Elizabeth and The Archduke are talking about Gideon Blackburn. Elizabeth says he is a long-term confidante, a skilled advisor and diplomat, whose journeys, for the Crown, have met with spectacular success. The Archduke insists he is in-love him her. Elizabeth agreed he might be as many are. She is the queen of England and represents something glorious, for everyone. And if he wants to banish every person who is dazzled by her, they'd be a nation of mainly women.

Elizabeth professes her love to Gideon Blackburn in a secret church nuptials. She vows to him, but to God. And woven into this fabric from her mother's dress are her dreams of lasting love for Elizabeth. She tells him the joy she would have felt knowing she'd met Gideon.

Elizabeth thinks it was the Archduke who poisoned Gideon Blackburn, as he was the only one who had motive. He knew how much she loved Gideon and that she would never end the affair. After he left Elizabeth in England, to grieve on her own while he tends to business. She then tells Jane The archduke has a Portuguese ship sailing to Austria, his family's business depends on the gold it carries. And she is going to steal it.

Days later, Jane informs Elizabeth, Naval Commander Francis Drake had arrived, their meeting set up by John Hawkins. Elizabeth told him she had a special mission that requires his naval expertise and ships. There was a Portuguese freighter filled with jewels, gold, silver setting sail for Austria, and she wanted that cargo for England. Adding the operation cannot be traced back to her, and he will be well compensated. Francis Drake confirms they will utilize blank sails, and hide any semblance of British emblems during your attack. In return, Elizabeth will gibe them 10% of the haul.


Queen Elizabeth: Catherine de' Medici, what a pleasure to meet someone so legendary. Common lore is that your teeth are filed to points and your eyes are black with rage. Yet here you are. Lovely as a sunny day.
Queen Catherine: You radiant warmth and beauty yourself. Though I know you are responsible for the death of nearly a thousand men in France, just this month alone. My son was nearly one of them.
Queen Elizabeth: Oh, well you mustn't listen to gossip. [4]
