9 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 658 libraries worldwide
"Elizabeth I, who reigned over Shakespeare's England and defeated the Spanish Armada, is familiar both from her portraits and as Gloriana, the Virgin Queen. Yet the reality of her character and her personal attitudes are harder to detect behind the public mask. Elizabeth I, a major biography by a leading Tudor expert to mark the four hundredth anniversary of her death in 1603, looks in detail behind the public life at the private woman. It treats at length her early years and examines her actions and policies as queen." "By any standards, her life was an extraordinary one: her father, Henry VIII, executed her mother, Anne Boleyn, for whose sake he had set up the Church of England; her sister, Queen Mary, came near to having her executed. Coming to the throne in 1558, she remained the only unmarried queen regnant in England's history, holding, for a woman, unprecedented power. She faced major religious and political problems at home and abroad for much of her reign, coping with them by a combination of guile, procrastination and shrewdness."--BOOK JACKET.

Intrigue and treason : the Tudor court, 1547-1558 by D. M Loades ( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 452 libraries worldwide
"From 1547 to 1558 the Crown of England was held first by a minor and then by the country's first Queen Regnant: Mary. It was Mary who shaped many of the conventions which Elizabeth then exploited, and she gets far too little credit for that. Intrigue and Treason shows how Elizabeth, in fact, deliberately set out to destroy her sister's reputation." "The mid-Tudor court remains relatively unknown, yet it was a critical age for the monarchy and the state. Intrigue and Treason uncovers the politics and culture, the strategies and entertainments of this period."--BOOK JACKET.

England's maritime empire : seapower, commerce, and policy, 1490-1690 by D. M Loades ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
"This wide-ranging book spans the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and charts England's rise to international and colonial power. That rise was achieved, first through a growing awareness and then a conscious exploitation of England's powerful Atlantic situation and maritime potential." "Medieval England had been the focus of a fluctuating land based empire which had embraced much of France, but Early Modern England turned away from such aspirations and began to create a new role through developing sea power. This spread throughout the world beyond Europe, and particularly to the New World across the Atlantic, driven by ambitions which were commercial and intellectual rather than religious or dynastic." "Charting these developments, and the very origins of Empire, this book emphasises the increasing role of government; first in developing the navy, and then in deploying it to support commercial aggression. It is an important contribution to the imperial and naval history of Early Modern Britain."--BOOK JACKET.
