    If you never read a single book about Elizabeth I don't start with this one It does a nice job of giving an introduction to Elizabeth's reign but is by no means comprehensive all all encompassing Even Doran who is uite biased in Elizabeth's favor has written better I recently read an ARC from NetGalley by Doran called Elizabeth I and Her Circle much better though still uick to excuse Elizabeth's flaws instead of admitting they're there and leaving it at thatTo me forever Elizabeth will be a manipulative spoiled attention demanding tantrum prone ueen Though Mary did herself no favors by constantly being involved or implicated in assassination plots Elizabeth certainly laid blame everywhere but on herself when the execution order was acted onThere won't be much new info here for those who are Tudorphiles but I definitely don't recommend it as an intro to her reign Perhaps it's best described as a handy volume as a uick refresher

  2. Helene Harrison Helene Harrison says:

    Review Don't be fooled by the short length of this book it includes a lot of portraits sources and discussion But it also does cover a long period and misses out some important events in detail like the death of Amy Robsart in 1560 and the extent of Elizabeth's relationship with Thomas Seymour and how that affected her decision not to marry Nevertheless an excellent introduction to those with only a limited knowledge of the period and a good review for anyone wanting to recap what they learned at school or collegeGeneral Subjects? History Biography TudorsRecommend? – YesRating 1620

  3. Jonathan Reed Jonathan Reed says:

    An excellent overview of the life of Elizabeth I Susan Doran manages to provide sufficient detail without becoming bogged down in extensive analysis She also naturally assumes that Elizabeth was an intelligent woman who was fully capable of ruling a nation during a time of great religious economic and social upheaval Unlike many historians Doran does not belittle Elizabeth's accomplishments by attempting to attribute them to the men behind the scenes For this reason alone Doran's biography stands out from the crowded multitude of Elizabethan biography

  4. Debra Debra says:

  9. Jessie Jessie says:
