'All The Queen's Men' View details

The last of the Tudor monarchs, Elizabeth the 1st, became one of the greatest Queens in English history. She was an exacting taskmaster who demanded unrivalled loyalty from all those who served her. The course focuses on the men who were the power behind her throne and the political lengths they went to for glory and honour from their queen. We see how Elizabeth played the game of courtly love and toyed with both English and Foreign suitors. We appraise how she used her courtiers to create one of the most glittering courts in Europe. We consider the unstoppable rise of England as a sea-faring nation and the lucrative trade routes of the New World. We assess the reasons why, in her older years, she modelled herself as the Virgin Queen and, how she used her network of spies to keep her enemies at bay, including the threat from the mighty Spanish invasion, after which her reign was celebrated as the Golden Age of Elizabeth 1.
