Lives of the queens of England, from the Norman conquest by Agnes Strickland( Book )

168 editions published between 1186 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English writer Agnes Strickland (1796-1874) began her career writing poetry and romances before turning to biographical studies. This eight-volume series, written in collaboration with her sister Elizabeth, and first published between 1840 and 1849, was her most ambitious project. It provides biographical accounts of the queens of England from Matilda of Flanders to Queen Anne. Hugely popular in the Victorian period, Lives of the Queens of England and its sequel Lives of the Queens of Scotland remain important landmarks in the development of biography as a genre, and provide interesting perspectives on women's contribution to modern historiography. Volume 7 focuses on Mary II (1662-1694), and discusses her complicated relationship with her father, James II, and her sister, the future Queen Anne.

Lives of the queens of Scotland and English princesses connected with the regal succession of Great Britain by Agnes Strickland( Book )

70 editions published between 1850 and 2016 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agnes Strickland (1796-1874) and her sister Elizabeth collaborated on many biographical projects. They were pioneering historical biographers and key figures in the development of women's history. Writing from a female perspective, they included coverage of domestic matters that male historians had previously ignored. Although much of the work is Elizabeth's, she preferred to avoid publicity and her sister Agnes appeared as the sole author. This eight-volume series (originally published between 1850 and 1859) was the sequel to their hugely popular Lives of the Queens of England and allowed Agnes to indulge her passionate interest in Mary, Queen of Scots, to whom Volumes 3-7 are devoted. Volume 3 (1852) covers Mary's birth, her childhood at the French court and her return to Scotland in 1561. Thoroughly researched and referenced, it describes both the personal and political aspects of Mary's early life
