About this title:
Synopsis:
This is a joint biography of Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots, their reigns and relationship with each other. These rival queens, both with a claim to the English throne, embodied opposing characteristics, ideals of womanliness and divinely-ordained kingship, resulting in a relationship that is punctuated by murder and psychological and actual warfare. Jane Dunn marks the 400th centenary of Elizabeth's death, by chronicling the intrigues of the lives of the rival "sister queens". Dunn juxtaposes the histories of the two women and the power struggle that continued between them until Elizabeth asserted her authority and, albeit hesitantly, signed Mary's death warrant.

Jane Dunn was born in South Africa and came to England aged seven. After university, she worked at Vogue before becoming a freelance journalist. She is the author of the biographies of Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell, Mary Shelley and most recently a sensational biography of Antonia White. She lives in Bath.
