The year is 1546. Suleiman the Magnificent, the powerful and feared Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, issues an invitation to every king in Europe:

"You are invited to send your finest player to compete in a chess tournament to determine the champion of the known world."



The Event

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 Competitors

The English delegation, led by esteemed scholar Roger Ascham and accompanied by his pupil, Bess, journeys to the glittering city of Constantinople.

The Impact on a Young Girl

It is not a battle of wits that unfolds before Bess' eyes but barbaric deaths, unimaginable depravity and diplomatic treachery - a terrifying sequence of events that will forever determine how she will perform her future roll...as Queen Elizabeth I.
