From her birth as daughter of the unfortunate Anne Boleyn until her death as England's Virgin Queen, Elizabeth led both a turbulent and triumphant life. This biography attempts to reflect the many sides of her personality: the precocious child, watching a succession of step-mothers come and go after her own mother was executed; the scholarly and quick-witted adolescent; the woman, flirting with the Earl of Leicester, agonizing over the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots and triumphing against the Spanish Armada. The author looks beyond the popular images of the Queen to reveal the woman behind the public face.
