Storyline

The new Queen Elizabeth I is 25 years old - and unmarried. Her council - particularly the man she trusts most, Sir William Cecil - urges her to marry quickly (to ensure the succession, among other valid reasons). Only Lord Robert Dudley, at first her Master of the Horse, and eventually the Earl of Leicester, seems to interest the queen. Written by GusF
