Romance | Historical
The reign of Queen Elizabeth I was a time of war, passion,
and spectacular achievement. Elizabeth: The Golden
Age finds Elizabeth facing bloodlust for her throne and
familial betrayal. Growing keenly aware of the changing
religious and political tides of late sixteenth-century
Europe, Elizabeth faces an open challenge from the Spanish
King Philip II, who is determined to restore England to
Catholicism with his powerful army and dominating armada.
Preparing to go to war to defend her empire, Elizabeth
struggles to balance ancient royal duties with an
unexpected vulnerability: her love for the seafarer Sir
Walter Raleigh. But he remains forbidden for a queen who
has sworn body and soul to her country.
Yet as she charts her course abroad, treachery is the rot
behind the glittering royal throne. Her most trusted
adviser uncovers an assassination plot that could topple
the throne, and the traitors may even include Elizabeth's
own cousin Mary Stuart.
Based on the sequel to the Academy Award-winning
Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age tells the
thrilling tale of an eraâ€”the story of one woman's crusade
to control love, crush enemies, and secure her position as
a beloved icon of the Western world.
