They were indeed a gift worthy of Gloriana. Then, as Lizbeth watched, standing a little to one side in the humblest position as became the youngest and least-important Maid of Honour, she heard the Queen tell Lord Burleigh to bring her a sword, and despite herself, Lizbeth drew a deep and audible breath of excitement.
