Elizabeth Tudor, an orphaned teenager who becomes embroiled in the political and Becoming Elizabeth is the fascinating, untold story of the early life of England’s most iconic Queen. Long before she ascended the throne, young Elizabeth Tudor was an orphaned teenager who became embroiled in the political and sexual politics of the English court. The death of King Henry VIII sets into motion a dangerous scramble for power. His surviving children find themselves pawns in a game between the great families of England and the powers of Europe who vie for control of the country. The world of Becoming Elizabeth is visceral, dangerous, and very bloody; a time in which every man or woman of the court is on the wheel of fortune, which may take them to a position of great power one moment, or the executioner’s block the next. Judgements are rendered quickly, and no one is safe.
In the trailer, you can see the aftermath of the death of King Henry VIII’s death and how it affects his three surviving children, Mary, Elizabeth, and Edward. We love to see Elizabeth attempting to take control of her destiny.
