Queen Elizabeth Tudor is still known today as "Gloriana" after her small fleet of agile ships defeated the Spanish Armada's 131 galleons in the English Channel on 6 August 1588.
But how did this happen and why is the late Elizabethan era the "Golden Age?"
In this beautiful creative non-fiction biography you'll meet Elizabeth as you have never met her before.
Whether you are a fan of the Tudor dynasty or this is your first time exploring English history, you will gain valuable insights into the mind of perhaps the most legendary woman in world history as told through the eyes of her famous -- or infamous -- relationship with Robert Dudley. Continues the story of Mary Queen of Scots (explored in book three) with Queen Mary's trial and its impact on Elizabeth.
Features six medieval and Elizabethan songs, excerpts from period documents, a detailed timeline, and an extensive suggested reading list.
For ages 10+
Recommended pairing: "Mary Queen of the Scots."
