Elizabeth's life was troubled from the moment she was born. Henry VIII had changed the course of his country's history in order to marry Anne Boleyn, hoping that she would bring him the strong and healthy son that Catherine of Aragon never did. Henry the VIII wanted to have a son but Catherine of Aragon never brought him so he decided to marry with Anne Boleyn. But Anne Boleyn brought to Henry VIII a girl too, Elizabeth. Elizabeth was a daughter of the late King Henry VIII, so she was in line to the throne.
She was surrounded by advisers, like William Cecil, and Francis Walsingham whose ministry dominated much of his reign, known as the "Elizabeth age". He refund the offer of marriage to Philip II of Spain, and would remain single all his life, earning him nicknames like "the virgin queen" in absolutely justified given the long relationship he had with various lovers, especially with the ear of Leicester She was a protestant queen so she pursued the Catholic people. In the film we can see that a the Duke of Norfolk tries to kill her just for being Protestant and not Catholic like the other Kings.
He studied at king’s college, after he goes to the European university of Padua to study law, he can make that things because he born in a well-connected family. When he finished his career he comes to England again but the Queen Mary1st of England. in 1556 expatriates him in exile in Switzerland but when the Queen Mary’s death and she’s half-sister Elisabeth the 1rst became the new Queen Walsingham was in northern Italy. Walsingham return to England for Elisabeth’s I coronation ceremony in 1558.
His friendship with Sir William Cecil helped him to become a member of Parliament in 1559. Walsingham ‘The Spymaster’ was the counsellor of the Queen Elisabeth I but, to protect his Queen he had to secretly spy on in Norfolk's allied group of royal court to preventing the Ridolfi Plot. Walsingham managed to stop the conspiracy, killing the Queen Mary of Scots and executing to the enemies of the Queen.
Sir Francis Walsingham dedicated his life to the service of the Queen and the town until the end of his days arrives in 1590 in Chislehurst.
He was an English military and political, was born around 1532 and died in Cornbury (Oxfordshire) on September 4, 1588. He was ‘friend’ of Edward VI and Elizabeth I, was the son of the influential John Dudley, Earl of Warwick and Duke of Northumberland. He tried that Jane Gray got the throne of England instead of Mary Tudor. He was the leader of a Protestant sect.
In the film we can see that Robert Dudley is in love of Elizabeth and he wants to marry with her. He has some problems with the Queen. Sir Francis Walsingham and William Cecil weren’t agree of that relationship with the Queen. We can see that when Dudley sees that he can’t stay with the Queen he decides to meet with a Queen’s friend and she have to dress up exacly like the Queen.
William Cecil, 1 st baron of Burghley, was born in Linconshire 13 th September 1520 and he dead in London 4th August in 1598. He entered parliament in the reign of Edward VIII. He was one of the directors of the queen Elizabeth until she granted him the title of Baron of Burghley He and Francis Walsingham were the advisors of the Queen.
Cecil reinforced the Army and Navy, and due of the periodic threats Catholic rebellion against the Queen, managed to organize a dense network of spies from the hand of Sir Francis Walsingham, his main collaborator. His main rival in court was the queen's favorite, Robert Dudley, who had important problems for Queen’s favor.
He is the person who cares for Elizabeth. Elizabeth has a great affection ha that has been with her from the first moment. As appreciation for her years of service to the Queen Elizabeth, she decides to give her the title Baron Burghley
He has an important role in the film. His name is Thomas Howard, and he appears as a village in the film. He lives in the palace with the Queen and he wants to kill her. He can’t do it so he contracts people to kill her.
He is against the Queen because Elisabeth was protestant and he can’t respect his religion and he wants to change it. Whereupon he can’t change it he tries to kill her. Mary was Christian and Norfolk helped her a lot but he hates Elisabeth for being protestant.
In the film, at the beginning Elisabeth respects the two religions so Norfolk doesn’t try to do nothing but then, while she is deciding what religion she want for his people, Norfolk knows that she wants Protestant religion. Then, he tries to kill her but Elisabeth knows that and she orders to her soldiers to kill him for traitor.
Francis, the Duke of Anjou was a man a bit fool, he was youngest son of Henry II of France and Catherine the Medici. When he was a child he had smallpox and smallpox poer and deformation in the column change step name and Hercules to Francisco (the name of his dead brother).
In the film he go asked for marry Elisabeth. When Elisabeth received the Duke of Anjou, he made a joke because he dressed as one of her servant and Elisabeth was kissed by a servant because she thought he was the duke of Anjou. When the Duke of Anjou and Elisabeth went sailing the life of Elisabeth was in danger twice. And Anjou was seen by Elisabeth wearing as a woman.
Later the duke of Anjou fell seriously ill with "tertian ague", or malaria. Catherine de' Medici brought him back to Paris. The 10 June 1584 the duke of Anjou dead.
