Few relationships fire our imagination like that of Elizabeth I and her "bonnie sweet Robin" - the Earl of Leicester, Robert Dudley. But not in almost half a century has there been a book dedicated to exploring and disentangling the emotive, often contradictory facts about their lifelong love. Rather than retelling a story we already know, Gristwood seeks to untangle the myths and stories that surround this fabled partnership. Elizabeth & Leicester is a portrait of two people who forged their age; of a relationship in which, unusually, a woman held all the power; of an edgy yet enduring love that still stirs us today.More
"One of the most enthralling history books I've ever read. You must read this!" (Alison Weir, author of The Life of Elizabeth I)
