The story of Elizabeth I, the
last Tudor monarch, is one of enduring fascination. Daughter of the
tyrannical Henry VIII and sister of the embittered Queen Mary,
Elizabeth did well to survive her childhood. Clever, learned and
skilled in diplomacy, as queen she presided over a golden age of
literature, exploration and discovery. A selective
version of events from Elizabeth's life focuses on her younger years,
without distorting the
picture of a reign dominated by war, political intrigue and religious
disputes.



Lives in Action is a series of
narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures
in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will
keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
