Following the tremendous success of her ?rst novel, Innocent Traitor, acclaimed historian and New York Times bestselling author Alison Weir turns her masterly storytelling skills to the early life of young Elizabeth Tudor, who would grow up to become England’s most intriguing and powerful queen.

Before she is three, Elizabeth learns of the tragic fate that has befallen her mother, the enigmatic and seductive Anne Boleyn, and that she herself has been declared illegitimate, an injustice that will haunt her all her life. What comes next is a succession of stepmothers, bringing with them glimpses of love, ?eeting security, tempestuous conflict, and tragedy. The death of her father puts the teenage Elizabeth in greater peril, leaving her at the mercy of ambitious and unscrupulous men. Like her mother two decades earlier, she is imprisoned in the Tower of London–and fears she will also meet her mother’s grisly end. Power-driven politics, private scandal and public gossip, a disputed succession, and the grievous example of her sister, “Bloody” Queen Mary, all cement Elizabeth’s resolve in matters of statecraft and love, and set the stage for her transformation into the iconic Virgin Queen. 

Sweeping in scope, The Lady Elizabeth is a fascinating portrayal of a woman far ahead of her time–whose dangerous and dramatic path to the throne shapes her future greatness.

    " Another fictional tale of Queen Elizabeth, or at least, the early years. 5 years old until she becomes queen after the death of her sister - Mary. Catholic vs. Protestant. You know the drill. Written like a soap opera, so kept it interesting. "

    " I liked this novel as it had quite alot of information about the early life and experience of Elizabeth I. I do not necessarily agree with Weir's view of history-she tends to take a very traditional view and I prefer authors that can view previous knowledge in a new and interesting way. "

    " I enjoyed Alison Weir's "Innocent Traitor" so much more. Still interesting to read, always amazed at how much the royals' lives are/were dictated by councils and hearsay. "
