    Sending her abroad could be a recipe for disaster. All she have to do is leave her prospective fiance at the altar and go to a pro-protestant country and she would have an army for usurpation. Keeping her under house arrest keeps her from an army.

    Nobody will send her abroad. Philip and Mary’s list of candidates for Elizabeth will include exclusively some of their relatives (the Duke of Savoy who has lost his own lands to the French, the second and third son of HRE Ferdinand and the brother of the King of Portugal) who can be trusted and shipped in England.

    Lord Maltravers - the earl of Arundel's son and heir - was also considered for a while. Said Lord was much liked by Felipe, who even employed him on diplomatic missions abroad. I wonder if the gentleman would be considered here?
