Synopsis

Biography: Elizabeth I by Simon Adams

Read the extraordinary story of Elizabeth I's life, from her troubled childhood to her remarkable adult life as queen of England. Following the execution of her mother and disownment by her father, Elizabeth was never expected to sit on the throne. She rose above her imprisonment in the Tower of London and rejected several marriage proposals to emerge triumphant as England's most powerful queen. Pushing the boundaries of the British Empire ever further through exploration, patronage of the arts, and strengthened trade, Elizabeth became a glorious monarch, loved and celebrated by her people.

Reviews

'Facts are well presented ...A good book for the classroom, but it would also be enjoyed as a leisure read for those children interested in history.'

'A colourful queen whose story is told through a suitably colourful book. Clear, factual information is split into succinct and sensible sections so key information can easily be found... It's easy to read and to absorb the information'
