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

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

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?

But he is richer and more powerful than all of the others!
