Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)

Biography / Historical drama

Elizabeth might have her royal rival Mary Queen of Scots in custody, but a far greater threat lies to the east: the Spanish Armada. Despite her reign of 30 years, Elizabeth's hold on the English throne remains uncertain. Her kingdom lies in the shadow of mighty Spain, Philip II's vast army and the Inquisition, but Elizabeth is undaunted.
