Overview

England's first Queen Elizabeth gave her name to an age.

Inheriting a bankrupt, famished, and powerless country, she healed its religious rifts, replenished its treasury, redefined diplomatic guile, defeated the Spanish Armada, and inspired a new flowering of English culture.

Her father, Henry VIII, beheaded her mother, Anne Boleyn, and Elizabeth was declared a bastard. As Henry kept marrying and discarding wives, she had to be adroit and canny to avoid being snared in the schemes of courtiers plotting to win the crown. And when at last she ascended the throne, her councilors told her she could survive only by marrying.

But she reigned for forty-four years as Glorianna, the "Virgin Queen," whose wit, evasions, and towering intellect frustrated enemies both within and outside her island kingdom. The more we know about Elizabeth’s endless complexity, the more remains to be learned. Here's a beginning.

    England's Greatest Queen

    This fast-paced, well-written book tells the extraordinary story of Queen Elizabeth I. Her trials and tribulations would have done in almost any monarch, but not her. The author  portrays Elizabeth as thoroughly human. By the end of the book, I felt I knew this amazing woman (or at least wished I had). I'm recommending this book to my friends.

    I've seen (and loved) the movies about Elizabeth, but was really glad to learn about her life and its circumstances. This book dispenses with soap-opera speculation and tells the story in a clear and vivid way that I imagine Elizabeth herself would approve of. Highly recommended.
