Elizabeth The Great by Elizabeth Jenkins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Elizabeth Jenkins illuminates in great detail the personal and private life of Elizabeth 1. Was she bald? What precisely was her sex-life? What were her emotional attachments? No other biography provides such a personal study of the Queen and her court - their daily lives, concerns, topics of conversation, meals, living conditions, travels, successes and failures - but it also places them firmly within the historical context of 16th Century Britain. An authoritative history of the period enlightened by a thorough understanding of Elizabethan society and an intimate portrait of the Queen.
