 —The Times (London)

The colorful, often tempestuous courtships of Queen Elizabeth I of England (the “virgin Queen”) are brought to breathtaking life in The Men Who Would Be King, a thrilling, utterly fascinating popular history by Josephine Ross. The highly respected author of The Winter Queen and The Tudors, Ross captures all the splendors of the royal court, and all the delicious intrigues surrounding the romances of the powerful daughter of King Henry VIII during her glorious reign. The Men Who Would Be King is spirited British history, captivating and eminently readable, that will equally delight fans of historical nonfiction, Tudor aficionados, and anyone who loves the bestselling novels of Philippa Gregory.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I was hoping this was a little more of a story, it is more of an academic book, just states a lot of facts and quotes but doesn't have much of a story. The book is still interesting just not very intriguing.
