Published In: United Kingdom, 20 August 2009
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 (author of The Tudors 'A model of popular history' THES), reflects more critically on her life and reign and highlights the contrary personality of a Queen who could both baffle and bedazzle her subjects.
