Publisher's Summary

There are many versions of Queen Elizabeth I of England; the beautiful young Tudor Queen courted by all the princes of Europe; a fearless virgin warrior in white velvet, rousing her troops on the battlefield; an irascible old woman in a powdered wig, surrounded by fawning young men. A formidable woman, Elizabeth I ruled alone at a time when Europe was a hotbed of conflict, dominated by empire-seeking Kings with opposing religious beliefs.

A shrewd politician, Elizabeth manipulated these Kings using any means necessary, including her own hand in marriage, to transform what had been a small, relatively impoverished half-island nation into one of the greatest powers in the world. "Queen of the Seas", "The Virgin Queen", "Gloriana" and "Good Old Bess", Queen Elizabeth I inspired a cult following during her lifetime that endures to this day.
