From her controversial coronation to her heirless death, Elizabeth I remains among the most captivating monarchs in English history. Over the course of her lengthy tenure, Elizabeth stabilized the Crown and expanded her country’s sphere of economic, cultural, and political influence. Her reign ushered in the English Renaissance and cemented the victory of Anglicanism over Catholicism. On the seas, England flexed its military muscle with a resounding defeat of the Spanish Armada, paving the way for New World exploration, naval dominance, and, ultimately, empire. With flowing eloquence, Robert Vahey oversees this biography of the Virgin Queen, which combines primary-source documents and vivid reenactments. Featuring an ensemble cast, atmospheric sound effects, and a regal soundtrack, this production is as rich and varied as Elizabeth’s reign.
