Description
Queens is the story of the rivalry that existed between two great European monarchs: Mary Stuart of Scotland and Elizabeth I of England. They fought for supremacy in the political, religious and personal realms, under the attentive eyes of the most feared monarch in Europe, Philip II, heir to the largest empire every created, of the Papacy and of the Kingdom of France.

On 19th August 1561, after 13 years of absence, a 19 years old grieving young woman steps onto land from the deck of a splendid galleon, accompanied by a retinue befitting a widowed Queen of France. Her name is Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland. Raised from an early age at the most exquisite Court in Europe, she has finally reached her country, Scotland. Scotland is a poor kingdom divided by religious strife and the constant squabbles between its different clans of nobles, the result of an intelligent strategy being pursued by Queen Elizabeth I, the head of the Anglican Church. The Papacy has declared all-out war against Elizabeth, a struggle in which Philip II will also become embroiled.
