A definitive portrait of one of the most compelling monarchs England has ever had: Elizabeth I.

''We are a prince from a line of princes.''

Lisa Hilton''s majestic biography of Elizabeth I, ''The Virgin Queen'', provides vibrant new insights on a monarch who continues to compel and enthral readers. It is a book that challenges readers to reassess Elizabeth''s reign, and the colourful drama, scandal and intrigue to which it is always linked.

Lisa Hilton uses new research in France, Italy, Russia and Turkey to present a fresh interpretation of Elizabeth as a queen who saw herself primarily as a Renaissance prince, delivering a very different perspective on Elizabeth''s emotional and sexual life, and upon her attempts to mould England into a European state.

Lisa Hilton is the acclaimed author ofThe Real Queen of France: Athénais and Louis XIV, Mistress Peachum''s Pleasure, Queens Consort: England''s Medieval QueensandThe Horror of Love.She is the author of two novels, the bestsellingWolves in WinterandThe House with Blue Shutters, which was shortlisted in the UK for the Commonwealth ...
