Born in 1900, Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon—the ninth of the Earl of Strathmore's ten children—would have lived in splendor regardless, but she would in time become the most beloved British monarch of the 20th century. Consort of King George VI, mother of Queen Elizabeth II, and grandmother of Prince Charles, Elizabeth was known as the Queen Mother, a strong-willed, surprisingly unpretentious woman serving in a largely symbolic role. Vividly detailed, written with unrestricted access to her personal papers, letters, and diaries, William Shawcross's biography of the long-lived Queen Mum is also a history of Britain in the 20th century.
