My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was officially my first bio on Elizabeth I, though I’ve read a lot about her father’s reign and I own a biography on her mother, Anne Boleyn.

This particular one focused on whether or not Elizabeth had any children and the possibilities when they could have born as well as commenting on other things of Elizabeth’s reign. I really enjoyed and I thought the author didn’t have any bias on who might have possibly been Elizabeth’s child. But like her previous book The Other Tudors: Henry VIII’s Mistresses and Bastards I did notice a few mistakes. Just on birth date and years, but it was easily overlooked.

I give this book 4 stars. Very interesting, but it was a little light on other important aspects of Elizabeth’s life, though I suppose if you’re looking for a general biography of Elizabeth, you might look elsewhere.
