A study of the political, social, and cultural forces that shaped Elizabethan England and Europe, the intrigue-laden Tudor court, and the woman who ruled in a male-dominated world.

In honor of the four hundredth anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth I, an detailed biography offers a close-up look at the political, social, and cultural forces that shaped Elizabethan England and Europe, the intrigue-laden Tudor court, and the woman who ruled in a male-dominated world. Reprint. 12,500 first printing.

Glitteringly detailed and engagingly written, the magisterial Elizabeth I brings to vivid life the golden age of sixteenth-century England and the uniquely fascinating monarch who presided over it. A woman of intellect and presence, Elizabeth was the object of extravagant adoration by her contemporaries. She firmly believed in the divine providence of her sovereignty and exercised supreme authority over the intrigue-laden Tudor court and Elizabethan England at large. Brilliant, mercurial, seductive, and maddening, an inspiration to artists and adventurers and the subject of vicious speculation over her choice not to marry, Elizabeth became the most powerful ruler of her time. Anne Somerset has immortalized her in this splendidly illuminating account.
