1998 historical drama about Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen and last Tudor monarch, portrayed by Cate Blanchett.

Followed by a sequel in 2007.

First watch (pre-wiki)Edit


Not sure when or why I watched it, I remember more its sequel but on rewatching it in 2014 I definitely had flashes of recollection which prove to me that I had watched it before.

Second watch (24th March 2014)Edit


At home.


At the school I was working at the children had been learning about the Tudors for a while, which started to pique my interest and I guess at some point I was reminded of this film, and its sequel, which I had watched once before and enjoyed. On the evening of the 24th of March 2014 I watched it through again.

It was good, very dramatically pleasing and believable (as a story rather than history). I enjoyed watching it. Could have been better I guess if it had been more realistic, more verisimilitudinous.
