An intimate biography of the public and private life of Elizabeth I.

Too many biographies of Elizabeth I perpetuate the flattery she enjoyed from her courtiers. Leading Tudor historian, Richard Rex, reflects more critically on her life and reign and highlights the contrary personality of a Queen who could both baffle and bedazzle her subjects.
