Description
When she assumed the throne of England in 1702, Queen Anne had to contend with the nation's political and religious strife, as well as an ongoing war with France. In this biography by the author of The Affair of the Poisons, Anne is shown as a more significant figure than is commonly believed; by the end of Anne's relatively brief, 12-year reign, her nation—now unified with Scotland—was emerging as a great power. Anne Somerset also delves into the queen's friendship with the glamorous, outspoken Sarah Churchill, a relationship that brought both support and torment to the monarch.

"[This book] is a grand achievement.... If ever a work of history managed to be 'definitive' and yet great fun to read, this is it."—Michael Korda

"The definitive biography of the first Queen of modern Britain. Here, in brilliant detail, unfolds the passionate highs and tragic lows of a woman who fought to place her own mark in history. Queen Anne is a triumph of research and empathy."—Amanda Foreman
