Summary
An ageing queen, an heirless state, conspiracy all round: here is the court of Elizabeth I as never known before. History has pictured Elizabeth I as Gloriana, an icon of strength and power. But the reality, especially during her later years, was not so simple. In 1583 Elizabeth is 50 years old, past childbearing, but her greatest challenges are still to come: the Spanish Armada; the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots; relentless plotting among her courtiers. This portrait of her life and times - often told in her own words - reveals a woman who is fallible, increasingly insecure, and struggling to lead Britain. Shortlisted for the Costa Book Award 2016
