To Death We Must Stoop: As Mary rides to Whitehall, the king is ill, and the court that once despised Catholics now faces the possibility of having one as its leader. When it comes to caring for their sick brother, Mary and Elizabeth are briefly reunited, but Edward is upset that if Mary takes the throne, his legacy of a Protestant England will die along with him.

Elizabeth observes as the court shatters long-standing ties and forges new allegiances, with each man desperately attempting to survive whatever may be about to happen. That is, until Elizabeth is challenged with the question: Why should she not be the first woman to rule England?

Becoming Elizabeth is the fascinating 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. With no clear heir, the death of King Henry the 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.

Elizabeth struggles to control her own destiny and take real power as the men around her attempt to claim her sovereignty. Her fascinating and factual journey to secure the crown is filled with scheming, betrayal and illicit relationships that threaten to bring forth her demise at 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.
