The season finale of Becoming Elizabeth sees us fast-forwarding two months from the end of the last episode, where we saw Edward coughing up blood.
The king appears to be dying, there’s a power struggle between Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset, the former Lord Protector, and his successor, John Dudley, but also between Edward’s half-sisters, Mary and Elizabeth, and then, wham bam, Edward is standing there: “Surprise, I’m alive, and you’re all in big trouble! One of you in huge trouble!”
That about covers it!
But is any of that true? Well, let me, historian and best-selling author Claire Ridgway, enlighten you.
