`This is a penetrating and colourful history of the mid-Tudor Court. Loades
has responded to both the revived interest in Edwardian and Marian politics
and the current fascination with the Court to explore and demonstrate the
role of the royal home as a political arena and the heart of government. He
also provides fresh, stimulating and important assessments of Philip,
Elizabeth and other focal figures.'
- Professor Michael Graves, University of Auckland
With Elizabeth I and Henry VIII dominant, the Tudor world still casts a spell. Yet how did the court change from Henry's male sphere to Elizabeth's feminine court? From the school room of Edward, through Mary and Philip's reign to Elizabeth's loving virgin circle, the court changed through a series of plots, affairs and religious rollercoasters.
Intrigue and Treason pursues the Kings and Queens of sixteenth century through an unprecedented period of upheaval when there was no adult male to take the throne. Through an original study of both the politics and culture of the age, it shows how the monarchy and state adapted to a completely new form of rule: that of women and children.About the Author:
