Abstract:
Weaves history and biography to bring a portrait of Henry VIII's youngest daughter, the royal bastard of Anne Boleyn. Hesitant, indecisive, petulant, and contradictory, Elizabeth emerges from these pages as a consummate politician who transformed England from a peripheral European state into a world power.
