Product description


"'Probably the most widely-read popular historian of our time and undoubtedly one of the most prolific.' - The Times 'Praised by readers and reviewers alike for his meticulous scholarship and flowing prose.' - Telegraph 'The pearl of biographers.' - New Statesman There are few individuals in British history more towering, more charismatic, more influential than Gloriana, the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I, Queen of England and Ireland. She captures the imagination perhaps more than any other historical British figure and the story of her life is also the story of an age that would change the face of England forever."
