Description
The author of The Pirate Queen here delivers a vivid, engaging account of Elizabeth I, focusing on her role in the wars on religion that tore apart 16th-century Europe. Elizabeth's 1558 coronation procession was met with an extravagant outpouring of love. Only 25 years old, the young queen saw herself as a Protestant savior, aiming to provide the nation with new hope, prosperity, and independence from the Catholic foreign influence that had plagued her sister Mary's reign. Extravagant, witty, and hot-tempered, Elizabeth was the ultimate tyrant—yet at the outset, in religious matters, she was unfathomably tolerant for her day. Susan Ronald paints the queen as a complex character whose apparent indecision was in fact a political tool that she wielded with great aplomb.

''Ronald deftly pulls together a vast amount of historical research into a compelling narrative that's essential reading for anyone interested in the strife-torn world in which this most fascinating queen used both wits and diplomacy to safeguard her kingdom, despite almost insurmountable odds.''—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
