A film of the early years of the reign of Elizabeth I of England and her difficult task of learning what is necessary to be a monarch.
Though depicted as an elderly married man here, The Earl of Arundel was in his late forties and unmarried when Elizabeth ascended to the throne. He was also one of her suitors, making himself look ridiculous in his expenditures on clothes and bribes... ...
This is the Lord's doing. And it is marvelous in our eyes.
At the beginning of the film when Elizabeth is being arrested, she is addressed as "Princess Elizabeth". She was stripped of the title 'Princess' when Anne Boleyn was executed and called 'lady'. Mary Tudor made certain that distinction was maintained during her reign as she followed Catholic Law and considered Elizabeth a bastard.
