5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth through the eys of her bedfellows, 15 May 2013
Elizabeth's Bedfellows: An Intimate History of the Queen's Court, Anna Whitelock.
This book tells the story of the two bodies of the Queen through the eyes of her court. The book focuses on the disparity of the Queens body politic and her physical body and how these roles alter over time. Whitelock interlaces the story of her bedfellows and the critical part they play in the sanctity of the Queens two bodies, both in life and death. The details make this book, with wonderful descriptions of makeup and dressing regimes and explanations of the artists and the templates of the Queens face used in portraits. I enjoyed this book, learning about the intimacies of the Tudor court and how these alter european politics in the 16th century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Tudor, 2 May 2009
The short episode like chapters make the Mary's life into a real page turner. The book really brings the Tudor court to life, great description, so much detail from the actual sources. A truly academic book for the masses. A brilliant read. I loved it!
