Laurel A. Rockefellerabout this book: Everyone has heard Queen Elizabeth Tudor called "The Virgin Queen." Most also have heard Queen Elizabeth's reign referred to as "The Golden Age" and Elizabeth proclaimed "Gloriana."
But why? What is it about Elizabeth that makes her the subject of near rock-star celebrity status over four hundred years after her death? Why are their literally thousands of historical novels, films, and television programs about Elizabeth, her reign, and her legend?
In this creative non-fiction biography for young readers and families historian Laurel A. Rockefeller gets personal with Elizabeth to show us the woman behind the legend. Told through her lifelong relationship with Robert Dudley (which remained more or less constant since their first meeting at the ages of seven/eight years old until Dudley's death in on the 4th of September 1588), you discover the real reasons why Elizabeth never married and how key events and relationships in her life affected her personally. You also watch Elizabeth in her complex relationship with her second cousin, Queen Mary Stuart as Queen Mary stands accused of plotting to kill her.
The fate of two kingdoms are at stake as the lives of two cousins, both descended of Dowager Queen Catherine de Valois and her second husband Owen Tudor, intersect one of the most fascinating stories of all time.
Features six period songs, a detailed timeline, and comprehensive suggested reading list.
