There are many, many, many books written about Elizabeth I, and Alison Weir's is the best. She brings her sharp skills and perspective to the amazing story of a "bastard" child born to a soon-to-be beheaded queen that survives against all odds and becomes one of the most powerful rulers in all Europe. It's ironic that as Henry VIII disposed of wives left & right in his pursuit for a male heir, Elizabeth was there all along. I like to think of it as Anne Bolyen's revenge.
