A definitive portrait of one of the most compelling monarchs England has ever had: Elizabeth I. ‘We are a prince from a line of princes.’ Lisa Hilton’s majestic biography of Elizabeth I ‘The Virgin Queen’ uses new research to present a fresh interpretation of Elizabeth as a queen who saw herself primarily as a Renaissance prince delivering a very different perspective on her emotional and sexual life and upon her attempts to mould England into a European state. Elizabeth was not an exceptional woman but an exceptional ruler and this book challenges readers to reassess her reign and the colourful drama scandal and intrigue to which it is always linked.
