Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Elizabethans, Tudors | Session Type: Route-based
In 1562 Elizabeth I contracted smallpox at Hampton Court Palace and lay delirious, apparently on the point of death. This was one of the most intense succession crises of her reign.
Led by a costumed interpreter, students will take on the role of the Queen's counsellors at the time of great danger. They will take part in a heated debate: if the Queen dies, who should have the throne?
