Still arguing over the legitimacy of Elizabeth R and the primacy of the Catholic Church.

After Mary died childless, he backed the dubious claim of Henry VIIIís illegitimate daughter to the throne over the rightful claim of the Queen of Scots. One by one, however, his closest allies and advisors in the fight to restore Christian unity to Europe gave up hope on Elizabeth. Pope Pius V could not have been more direct: He called her a usurper and "the servant of crime" in his famous bull Regnans in Excelsis.
