Maria Regina d'Inghilterra Synopsis

Place: LondonTime: 1553.

Mary I of England is infatuated by the adventurer Riccardo Fenimoore, whom she has ennobled as Lord Talbot, but he is unfaithful having seduced the foundling Clotide, who has been raised and is now betrothed to the adoring Ernesto Malcolm, a commoner. Gualtiero Churchill, the Lord Chancellor, wants to protect the Queen by bringing Riccardo down, so he tells the Queen of Talbot's duplicity, and also reveals his knowledge that Clotilde is actually heir to the Talbot name. The Queen condemns Talbot to death but repents and orders Clotilde to see to his release. However, Churchill sees to it that the execution is carried out (to the dismay of the Queen).
