We see her reaction to her ladies wanting to marry, and when those nearest displeased her, we hear her response. We also see more of Elizabeth and Dudley's relationship, how he once again was lavished with power as the Queen's favorite, and how she behaved after jealousy set in.

If you are a fan of Elizabeth I then you'll appreciate this early 19th century (1818) sentiment. In this episode, we will jump forward a little in time to the year 1573. By now, Mary, Queen of Scots, had married and buried Lord Darnley, and she had also married Lord Bothwell and abdicated her throne. At this point, Mary had already been Elizabeth's prisoner for years. They would number 19 in all, but at this point, it was still early on. So let's look at what the 19th-century observer had to say about Elizabeth's reaction to the Scottish queen and her favorite's trouble with Lady Sheffield.

As this podcast continues to evolve, I decided this season, I would do my very first themed season. Queens! We'll learn about a marvelous collection of queens from various guests. In addition, I'll be narrating a story about the court of Queen Elizabeth, and we'll have a special mini-series on Queen Mary I. Today we look at the fantastic story of Henrietta Maria, wife of King Charles I, with historian Leanda de Lisle. --- Credits: Host: Rebecca Larson Guest: Leanda De Lisle Edited by: Rebecca Larson Voice Over: David Black Music: Ketsa, Alexander Nakarada, and Winnie the Moog
