Becoming Elizabeth Season 1: Story so far

The Starz original series opened with the death of Henry VIII and his son, Edward VI, being proclaimed the kind of England. Edward was supported by his uncle and Lord Protector, Edward Seymour, and Henry’s widow, Catherine Parr, married Thomas Seymour.

14-year-old Elizabeth went on to live with Catherine and Thomas and ended up developing a passionate romance with him. Meanwhile, the court of England was beginning to see the rise of a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants, which only escalated further.

When Catherine died after childbirth, Thomas began pining after Elizabeth to marry him, who enforced the condition that he would have to obtain Edward Seymour’s permission. The latter refused and Thomas was eventually beheaded for attempting to kidnap the king.

John Dudley and his sons, who worked for Edward Seymour, ended up disobeying him, and John seized power as the new Lord Protector. He proved to be brutal and cunning in his new role.

Mary and Elizabeth were presented with Protestant marriage propositions, and King Edward VI began to show signs of illness.
