Elizabeth the Great by Elizabeth Jenkins( Book )

100 editions published between 1958 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 3,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a revealing study of Elizabeth I and her court. The author examines both their historical significance and the minutia of their daily lives (conversational topics, meals, living conditions, etc.) to provide a contextual view of the court within 16th century Britain. The author also describes Elizabeth in terms of those things that make her most interesting--her fierce and consuming passion to play her role as Queen of England, her great physical energy, her fantastic vanity, her strange mixture of personal cowardice and extreme bravery, her steadfast loyalty to her trusted friends, and her brutal treatment of those who offended her.Includes bibliography

"The Princes in the Tower were Edward V of England and Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York. The two brothers were the only sons of Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville alive at the time of their father's death. Then 12 and 9 years old, they were lodged in the Tower of London by the man appointed to look after them, the Lord Protector, Richard, Duke of Gloucester. This was supposed to be in preparation for Edward's coronation as king. After Richard took the throne for himself, it is assumed that they were murdered. This may have occurred some time around 1483, but apart from their disappearance, the only evidence is circumstantial."--Wikipedia

The life and times of Queen Elizabeth I by Elizabeth Jenkins( )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This year marks the golden jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. It has been a challenging reign, one where she has had to characterise the monarchy in a modern age. She has been forced to accustom herself to the prying eye of the media and to maintain a sense of dignity while family upheavals stormed around her. This she has done with steadiness, so that she has emerged from 50 years as queen with, largely, the respect of the nation. Nanette Newman reads this balanced view of the Queen written especially for Naxos AudioBooks by the journalist and writer Pearson Phillips. He looks at her life from its beginnings (when she had little thought that she would become queen) through to her dutiful adoption of its responsibilities. Against the changing political situation, Phillips draws a sympathetic portrait, with her love of horses, her marriage to the strong-willed Prince Philip, and the, at times tumultuous, family life that followed
