The winter queen : Elizabeth of Bohemia by Carola Oman( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is the story of Elizabeth of Bohemia (1596-1662), the 'Winter Queen'. Daughter of James VI of Scotland (James I of England) and Anne of Denmark, she married Frederick V, Elector of Palatine. Her husband's acceptance of the throne of Bohemia in 1619 precipitated the Thirty Years War. Both Bohemia and Palatine were lost and the royal family fled to Holland where they lived in extreme poverty, dogged by misfortune." "Throughout this period, by sheer force of her personality, beauty and courage, Elizabeth maintained her role at the centre of her court-in-exile. She lived long enough to see her son Charles Louis restored to the electorate. Her daughter Sophia was the mother of George I of England. This beautifully written biography also paints pictures of late Shakespearean England in which she spent her youth and of the Restoration England to which she returned in old age."--Jacket
