Elisabeth 1 and Her Enemies to air on History Channel

Next week The History Channel delves into the history of one of England’s most well-known figures Elizabeth I.

In this 3 part series Dr Suzannah Lipscomb and Dan Jones, both young, dynamic historians, tell a heady tale of jealousy, treachery, ambition and tragedy alongside the lavish dramatisations that transport audiences back to the key clashes that shaped Elizabeth and England. Starting from the day she was born, until the day she died, Elizabeth was surrounded by enemies who threatened her crown and her life. From her sister Mary Tudor to her thwarted lover, King Philip of Spain, Elizabeth’s struggles, animosities and assassination attempts are analysed in detail.

Actress and supermodel Lily Cole plays Elizabeth I throughout her reign, from young princess to mature queen and gives us a performance that needs to be seen.

ELIZABETH I AND HER ENEMIES premieres Tuesday December 12 at 7:30pm on Foxtel’s History Channel.
