Thanking God again, Cecil expressed his gratitude that Essex was exposed as a traitor while he himself was found an honest man. Essex at the end shocked many by denouncing his sister Penelope, Lady Rich as his co-conspirator: the Queen, who was determined to show as much clemency as possible, ignored the charge. He had expected support from his followers, but unfortunately for him he did not receive it and was left to march alone, growing more and more anxious and terrified.

She helped the homeless, establishing a night shelter in London, campaigned for the abolition of the slave trade and opened a training school for nurses. Elizabeth offers no resistance to his forces, but once alone with him, convinces him that she will accept joint rule of the kingdom.
