The Young Elizabeth, The First 25 Years Of Elizabeth l

Minimum Donation €1.00

In this book Alison Plowden gives a vivid account of the first twenty- five years of Elizabeth I’s life, from her birth in September 1533 to her accession in November 1558. They were twenty-five years of exacting apprenticeship to an exacting trade – years that were frequently shadowed by danger and the fear of death; from them Elizabeth emerged the steely, subtle genius who was to enthral, baffle and infuriate her contemporaries for nearly half a century. Miss Plowden draws on contemporary chronicles, diaries, letters and diplomatic despatches to tell the story of the unparalleled circumstances surrounding Elizabeth’s birth. She goes on to describe her early upbringing, education and fluctuating fortunes from the execution of her mother Anne Boleyn to her own semi-imprisonment. The story ends with her triumphant accession.
