CHAPTER FOURTEEN

a pair of spectacles on his nose, and it was impossible not to giggle as he marched up and down declaiming in Latin against their behaviour, which he said made it vain for him to attempt to sleep or study.
Some of the Maids of Honour who were half-undressed begged him to go away, but he swore he would not leave them in possession of their bedroom unless they permitted him to rest. It was only when they promised to be as quiet as possible that he finally retired.
There were always incidents of some sort happening, Lizbeth discovered, and it was not surprising that the Maids of Honour found plenty to make them laugh. They were, however, all desperately afraid of the Queen and Lizbeth could well understand it when she was brought into the Royal presence.
It was impossible to believe, when one looked at her, that the Queen was fifty-five years of age. With her great farthingale spread out about her, a bodice of blue and silver with an open throat, slashed and puffed sleeves sewn with pearls the size of birds' eggs, she looked not only regal but beautiful.
As Lizbeth curtsied low, everything she had heard and learned about the Queen seemed unimportant save this amazing air of dignity and attraction intermingled one with the other so that it was hard to know where the Sovereign ended and the woman began.
For the first time Lizbeth could understand how the Queen's influence had extended and made itself felt over the whole world. She could realize why men were willing to strive and fight and die for Elizabeth of England, and why she was utterly and completely incomprehensible to the peoples of other nations.
Lizbeth, as she swept to the ground, remembered the throb in Rodney's voice as he spoke of Gloriana ; and now she saw, as other people had seen before her, how the Queen, so intelligent, so effervescent, imperious and regal, intoxicated both the Court and the country, and guided the realm with the intensity of her own spirit.
No one but a woman could have done it, and no woman without superlative gifts.
Late that evening, as Lizbeth stood watching the dancing,
