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.
