Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Elizabethans, Tudors | Session Type: Classroom-based
In 1562 Queen Elizabeth I contracted smallpox at Hampton Court Palace and lay delirious, apparently on the point of death. Who would rule next? The Court faces a terrible dilemma – deciding the next monarch to carry on the Tudor line.
Students will take on the role of the Queen's counsellors at this time of great danger. Through examination of the evidence and debating the major contenders for the throne, they will make the ultimate decision on the future of England.
