Overview

Excerpt from In the Days of Queen Elizabeth

Of all the sovereigns that have worn the crown of England, Queen Elizabeth is the most puzzling, the most fascinating, the most blindly-praised, and the most unjustly blamed. To make lists of her faults and virtues is easy. One may say with little fear of contradiction that her intellect was magnificent and her vanity almost incredibly childish; that she was at one time the most outspoken of women, at another the most untruthful; that on one occasion she would manifest a dignity that was truly sovereign, while on another the rudeness, of her manners was unworthy of even the age-in which she lived. Sometimes she was the strongest of the strong, sometimes the weakest of the weak.
