9780140087383: The Virgin Queen: Personal History of Elizabeth I

The author discusses the limitations of Elizabeth I's powers, and reveals ministers' techniques of hood-winking her. Also, her more sinister side when she ordered torture and delighted in bear-baiting. Hibbert recreates the atmosphere of her faction-ridden court and draws a picture of a fascinating and difficult woman, set against the background of her tumultuous times. The author also wrote "Africa Explored", "Benito Mussolini", "Edward VII" and "Days of the French Revolution".
