Now let us meet our very special girl.

It is my honour to introduce to you all the most magnificent, the great, the most glorious….

slide12

Hello everyone, I am Your Queen, and I know how much you want me to get married.

You believe that if I marry I will produce a male heir, England will remain Protestant and my new husband will use his influence to protect my country from war.

To help you decide who I should marry I have three questions to ask each suitor

question number 1
Question Number 1

My father went through a lot of pain, and lost many friends (and wives) to turn England into this great Protestant country.

What is your preferred religion?

question to number 3
Question to Number 3

Your father Henry VIII was a great man, however he was misguided. Catholicism is the true religion

Philip II Spain

question to number 2
Question to Number 2

I will have to be true to my Religion, I am a Catholic

Francis, Duc of Alencon

question to number 1
Question to Number 1

Protestant, no question

Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester

question number 2
Question Number 2

As Queen, I enjoy the finer things in life. Good food, fine wines, expensive clothes and I just love buying make-up.

My second question is, are you rich?

question to number 11
Question to Number 1

Oh yes, rich rich rich. I made most of my money in the trading companies, and a little extra spending money in the court.

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester

question to number 21
Question to Number 2

My brother is the King of France and I have lots of money and some estates in France. However my older brother inherited most of my fathers land.

Francis, Duke of Alençon

question to number 31
Question to Number 3

I have gold from South America, and I own a lot of other countries. I will share all I have with you. Choose me as your husband.

Philip II Spain

question number 3
Question Number 3

We all have skeletons in the closet. I have my cousin Mary Stuart locked up as we speak!

My third question is, is there anything you think I should know before my parliament decides who I should marry?

question to number 22
Question to Number 2

Although I am Catholic, please remember we French do not hate England as much as the Spanish do.

I understand that some people in England have published a pamphlet warning you not to marry me. Please don’t listen to them.

Francis, Duke of Alençon

question to number 32
Question to Number 3

I spoke to the Pope the other day, and he said I should have nothing to do with Protestant countries.

But we know each other well, I was married to your fine sister Mary. She knew that England should be Catholic.

Philip II Spain

question to number 12
Question to Number 1

We have known each other since we were children. You know I love you.

It was terrible when my wife Amy fell down those stairs to her death. But you must know, the rumours that I murdered her are just not true.

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester

slide25

How fantastic was that!

What a difficult choice.

You must now make up your minds, who should Good Queen Bess Marry?

Before you make your final decision here is a reminder of our four fabulous suitors

suitor number 1
Suitor, Number 1

Dudley has known the Queen since they were children.

But did he murder poor Amy?

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester

suitor number 3
Suitor, Number 3

A Catholic who plans to defend his faith.

He is very wealthy, but his former wife was Elizabeth’s sister Mary

Phillip II of Spain

suitor number 2
Suitor, Number 2

He is a French Catholic, but does not hate England as much as the Spanish hate us. He is very rich and his brother is King of France, a good Ally.

Loyal fans of Elizabeth have published a report urging Elizabeth not to marry him

Francis, Duke of Alençon

slide30

Although all of these contestants would make a wonderful husband, I can choose to marry only one.

After a lot of thought, I have made my decision.

I will marry the only one that I can be 100% faithful to…..
