9780141391250: Elizabeth I (Penguin Classic Biography)

From the biographer of Henry VIII, an appraisal of his youngest daughter, the woman who would rule England during its golden age. She inherited from her father his intelligence, his physical energy, and his ebullient personality. But was she herself a great queen, or did she merely preside over a great era in English history. Ridley argues that Elizabeth's actions during her reign of England, and its military and cultural supremacy were determined by the fact that her parents were Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.
