Elizabeth I (1533-1603) impressed herself more vividly on the memory of the world than any other monarch in the history of England. She successfully established and maintained power while refusing to bow to the wishes of those who believed no woman was fit to occupy the English throne. This biography describes the opulent but cruel childhood that shaped the woman Elizabeth became and details her triumphant reign, as well as the unrelenting forces that opposed her. Exploring the answers to some of history's most persistent and intriguing questions, Jane Resh Thomas has created a compelling account of Elizabeth's life that shatters the myths surrounding her and allows readers an unprecedented view of the queen as a human being. Full-color insert, chronology, bibliography, index.

A bit dry, but I did learn a few new things.

This book gives a nice little overview of England's most famous (and my personal favorite) Queen. If you are looking for something indepth, this is not for you. It has some nice pictures of the various portraits done of her and, like I said, gives a good overview of who Elizabeth I was and the most important aspects of her reign.
