Elizabeth I

store

🎥 Elizabeth I  premiered in 1998 and the sequel in 2007, were directed by Shekhar Kapur and played by Cate Blanchett (1969-).  Both were well made and inline with history.

The first is more on her ascendance to the throne, after the death of Catholic Mary I, which is played by Kathy Burke (1964-) and her portrays of Queen Mary is wonderful. She prosecutes and kills the protestants …  think of cocktail Bloody Mary. Vatican goes as far to assassinate Elizabeth, that is how much they fear.

That is religion.

The England Mary leaves behind is in shamble, and Spain and France are eyeing for an invasion. At 24, Elizabeth, a protestant who is still single. The most pressing matter is to find her a husband to produce an heir, to secure her crown.

The sequel is about her reign (1558-1603) and Spanish Armada in 1588. Sir Walter Raleigh (1552-1618), who had established Virginia in North America / US (Virginia  hints on his virgin queen) helped to win the war. But he dies by beheading. A very interesting figure.

伊丽莎白 🎬 讲她上位的故事.

话说她同父异母的姐姐信奉天主教的玛丽一世女王, 无娃+病入膏肓, 皇位要传给异教徒—新教 伊丽莎白一世. 梵蒂冈百般不乐意到动用暗杀. 玛丽在位(1553-8)的短短几年马不停蹄的杀害新教徒: 电影开始时就是几个新教徒被放在柴堆上活活烧死. Bloody Mary 🍹 血腥玛丽 名不虚传.
伊丽莎白是Anne Boleyn 安妮·博林的娃. 玛丽挺无能 她的几年统治期 🇬🇧 破破烂烂 🇫🇷🇪🇸虎视眈眈. 伊丽莎白即位时已经25岁, 剩女一枚. 当务之急是结婚: 拉联盟+生娃.
她坐镇45年(1558-1603),🇬🇧从天主教逐步转向新教…是位好王. 这是后话了.
这部电影里的二个女王(Kathy Burke和Cate Blanchett)都演得好.

天主教可以以上帝的名义名正言顺的滥杀无辜 也是醉. 一问 这是’上帝’的本意还是后人为巩固自己的利益/权利而肆意歪曲?

🇺🇸🇬🇧🇩🇪比🇫🇷🇮🇹🇪🇸强壮很多. 这和新教v 天主教 有关?

🎥 Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)

伊丽莎白 黄金时代 🎬 续集 同一导演和女一.

伊丽莎白一世执政期间(1558 – 1603) 打败西班牙的无敌舰队(1588); 领着🇬🇧奔小康 和平繁荣了好一阵. 一言堂取消变国会. 现任的伊丽莎白二世 虽然在位时间最长 不过是个摆设 养尊处优 是🇬🇧旅游景点. 没啥丰功伟绩可言 当个花瓶养着 但有个跟得老公 追随左右.

伊丽莎白一世身为女王但终生未嫁. 来相亲的她都看不顺眼. 她死后苏格兰王詹姆士拦下了这冠, 自封为大不列颠及爱尔兰国王.

伊丽莎白的二段情都不了了之. 第一个背叛了她. 第二个Sir Walter Raleigh (1552-1618) 沃尔特·罗利爵士, 娶了她的侍从 (女王伤心欲绝. 替她心碎)但他为她打败了🇪🇸 . 他冒险北美 把落脚地叫 Virginia 处女之都 映射他的处女女王. 🇺🇸北卡州府就是用他的名字命名. 他是个多才多艺 故事多的绅士. 在伦敦塔囚禁了几年后 最后死于断头台…
