In the year 1546, Suleiman the Magnificent, the feared Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, invites every king in Europe to send a champion to compete in a grand chess tournament.
The English delegation, led by esteemed scholar Roger Ascham and accompanied by his pupil, Bess, journeys to the glittering city of Constantinople.
