"That fair her seems...

That fair her seems the

less ye see her may.

Lo see soon after how...

Modesty.

There are things that she'll see.

Lo see soon after how... more

bold and free her bared bosom...

A see the virgin rose...

How sweetly she...

...doth peep forth

with bashful modesty."

There can be no

doubt about his sex.

Despite the feminine

appearance that...

...every young man at

the time aspires to.

And there can be no doubt

about his upbringing.

Good food.

Education.

A nanny.

Loneliness and isolation.

And...because this is England...

Orlando would therefore

seem destined...

...to have his

portrait on the wall.

And his name in the history books.

But when he...

That is...

I:

Came into the world.

He was looking for something else.

Though heir to a name that meant

power, land and property...

Surely when Orlando was born...

...it wasn't privilege he sought...

...but company.

Eliza ...

... Eliza's eyes are

blessed stars, ...

... Inducing peace,

subduing wars. ...

... O blessed be each

day and hour ...

... Where sweet Eliza

builds her bower. ...

... O blessed be each

day and hour ...

... Where sweet Eliza

builds her bower. ...

... Eliza is the

fairest queen ...

... That ever trod

upon the green. ...

that fair hill, ...

... Where virtue dwells,

and sacred skill. ...

... O blessed be each

day and hour ...

... Where sweet Eliza

builds her bower.

More wine my lord?

A see the virgin rose.

How sweetly she doth

first peep forth

With bashful modesty.

That fair her seems the

less ye see her may.

Lo see soon after how..

more bold and free her bared

bosom she doth broad display

Lo see soon after how she fades...

...and falls away.

Is this a worthy topic?

From one so clearly in

the bloom of youth.

To one who would desire it still?

Fair virgo gratious majesty,

Your bloom is legendary,

and these were of course not

the sentiments of our son,

but of a poet.

Now what would please you?

All that is mine is

here for your pleasure.

All you call yours is mine already.

Come.

Your leg.

I want you here in England with me.

You will be the son

of my old age...

...and the limb of my infirmity.

My favourite.

My mascot.

Come.

Aah, this is my victory.

Come, your handsome leg.

For you and for your heirs Orlando.

The house.

Your Majesty.

I'm forever i...

But on one condition.

Do not fade.

Do not wither.

Do not grow old.

Very interesting person.

First the queen and now his father.

It is too sad.

Mourning so becomes him.

One can quite see why

he was the favourite.

My dear friends how can you?

In his time of grief.

That way.

Sasha.

Who's that?

I believe she is the daughter

of the muscovite ambassador.

How the delightful.

If that's to your taste.

What ever can you mean?

Oh, smearing themselves with

candle wax to keep warm.

Wearing beards as they get

older, that kind of thing.

Perhaps in this you're

mistaken, Moray.

Told me on good authority

by Lord Francis Vere.

Does he travel to muscovite.

He knows someone who did.

Aah.

This is the Lady Euphrosyne.

The Lord Winchelsea.

The Lord Orlando.
