Summary -- Elizabethbreaks new ground and depicts a queen who was much less constrained by her femininity than most treatments claim. For readers of David Starkey and Alison Weir, it will provide a new, complex perspective on Elizabeth?s emotional and sexual life.?It?s a fascinating journey that shows how a marginalized newly crowned queen, whose European contemporaries considered her to be the illegitimate ruler of a pariah nation, ultimately adapted to become England?s first recognizably modern head of state.
Draws on new research to present the life of Elizabeth I as a ruler who saw herself as a Renaissance prince, and describes how she used Machiavellian statecraft to transform herself from a marginalized queen to England's first modern head of state.
