The film is a sequel to Elizabeth (1998; my review), which was one of two Oscar-nominated Elizabethan period pieces co-starring Joseph Fiennes and Geoffrey Rush that year — the other being the ultimate Best Picture winner Shakespeare in Love (1998).

More fun trivia: The actresses who played Elizabeth in both films were both nominated for Oscars; Shakespeare‘s Judi Dench won in the supporting-actress category for her eight minutes of screen time, while Elizabeth‘s Cate Blanchett lost the lead-actress award to Shakespeare‘s Gwyneth Paltrow. Blanchett went on to win a supporting-actress award for The Aviator (2004) and to co-star with both Paltrow, in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), and Dench, in The Shipping News (2001) and Notes on a Scandal (2006).
