** Philip II of Spain is shown as a hunched and shadowy figure with a dark beard who is an incompetant king and a religious fanatic. The real Philip was known as being highly intelligent and had several successes with his foreign policies. He was also tall, blond and handsome.

Added DiffLines:

* IcyBlueEyes: Elizabeth and John Ballard each have a set.


Added DiffLines:

* UnflinchingWalk: Ballard does one toward Elizabeth before she is called away when one of his victims is found.

Added DiffLines:

* OminousLatinChanting: Done several times in the film's soundtrack. Makes one wondering about the actual intentions of the creator as these are actual Catholic liturgic texts--in a film about a Protestant queen.

A 1998 {{Biopic}} of the early life of Queen UsefulNotes/ElizabethI of England, arguably one of the greatest monarchs to ever sit on that throne, and starring Creator/CateBlanchett in the title role. Broke the usual "period piece" mould of English biographical pictures in that it was directed by an Indian, Shekhar Kapur, took a much more dramatic style of storytelling, and didn't shy away from ''some'' historical truths of the era, such as dirt, poverty, and torture.

** The Duke of Norfolk was actually just a naive and gullible co-conspirator in a couple of plots, the first of which was only to marry MaryQueenOfScots, which alone was enough to get him jailed for a time (the second was to replace Elizabeth, which of course got his head the chop). He was not the cold and calculating power-hungry mastermind portrayed in the movie.

*** Nor was Mary of Guise his aunt, or related to him by blood - her daughter [[MaryQueenOfScots Mary I of Scotland]] was married to Henri's eldest brother, Francis II of France (married from 1558 until his death in 1560 - ''childless'', in fact); in fact, Henri's family, the House of Valois, were long-time rivals with Mary's House of Guise, and Henri never even ''met'' Mary of Guise in his lifetime.
