Storyline

Elizabeth meets her most eligible suitor yet: François, Duke of Alençon, the younger brother of the French king. A marriage will cement France's sought-for alliance with England.

As her duties as queen clash with her feelings as a woman, Elizabeth faces her toughest decision. Written by GusF
