The story begins in the Elizabethan era , shortly before the death of Queen Elizabeth I . On her deathbed, the Queen promises an androgynous young nobleman named Orlando a large tract of land and a castle built on it, along with a generous monetary gift. But Elizabeth will bequeath it to him only if he assents to an unusual command: Do not fade. Do not wither. Do not grow old...
