Queen Elizabeth I


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

You know that I am Protestant and that I would like my country to be protected from foreign invasion.

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


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

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

Philip II Spain


Question to Number 2

Protestant of course, I am a real Englishman, loyal to you my lady

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester


Question to Number 1

Protestant, no question

Prince Eric of Sweden


Question to Number 4

I have to agree with contestant number 3. I will stick to my Catholic roots !

Francis, Duke of Alençon


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 2

Oh yes, rich rich rich. I made most of my money by trading.

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester


Question to Number 1

I might not be as rich as some of the others, but I am heir to the Swedish throne so I have money!

Prince Eric of Sweden


Question to Number 4

My brother is the King of France and I have lots of money and some estates in France.

Francis, Duke of Alençon


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

We all have skeletons in the closet. I have my cousin Mary 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 1

I am a peace-loving man so I won’t drag you into any wars. Please, choose me.

Prince Eric of Sweden


Question to Number 4

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

Francis, Duke of Alençon


Question to Number 3

I spoke to the Pope the other day, and he said that maybe I should not marry you unless you agree to England becoming Catholic.

Philip II Spain


Question to Number 2

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

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester


How fantastic was that!

What a difficult choice.

Who should Good Queen Bess Marry?

Here is a reminder of our four fabulous suitors…..


Suitor, Number 1

A Protestant Prince, maybe not as rich as some of the others.

But he’s a man who would keep the peace!

Prince Eric of Sweden


Suitor, Number 2

Dudley has known the Queen since they were children.

But would the other English noble get jealous and plot against him and Elizabeth?

Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester


Suitor, Number 3

A Catholic who plans to defend his faith.

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

Phillip II of Spain


Hello, Number 4

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.

Francis, Duke of Alençon


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

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


But you will only find out who that is once you’ve done a bit more research…..
