Overview

"In Great Feuds in History, author Colin Evans puts us in the middle of ten of history's most significant struggles - high-stakes personal conflicts that had a lasting impact on the societies around them and on the generations that followed. Evans offers us an in-depth look at the personalities involved in the conflicts and the behind-the-scenes circumstances that caused these rivalries to take hold and fester. He asks, for instance, what was at the heart of the bitter, years-long feud between Queen Elizabeth I and her cousin Mary, Queen of Scots? Was it a religious battle between the Protestant monarch and Mary's pious Catholicism, as on the surface it seemed - or something more personal between the ambitious Virgin Queen and her wild and sexually impetuous counterpart?"--BOOK JACKET.
