Excerpt from Cardinal Pole; Or the Days of Philip and Mary: An Historical Romance

Eleven years younger than the Queen, who was then thirty eight, Philip was not merely in the very ower of manhood, but extremely handsome, and, as heir to a mighty monarchy, unquestionably the greatest match in Europe. No princess, however exalted, on whom he deigned to smile, would refuse him her hand.

But there were difficulties in the way of the projected alliance, only to be overcome by prudential management. For many reasons the match was certain to be obnoxious to the English nation, which would not unnaturally be ap prehensive of being brought under a foreign yoke. Neither was the Queen altogether her own mistress. Governed by her council - especially by the Lord Chancellor, Gardiner she could not act in contradiction to their decisions and some of her ministers would infallibly be hostile to the alliance. However, the Emperor did not despair of silencing the objectors. Neither treasure nor pains should be spared to effect his darling scheme.
