In the summer of 1548, the thirteen-year-old Princess Elizabeth Tudor was secluded at Cheshunt, England. There she gave birth to a boy, whose father was Thomas Seymour, ElizabethÂ’s stepfather. The child was placed in the household of John de Vere, 16th Earl of Oxford and the changeling baby was raised as Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, Anonymous, Roland Emmerich.

Edward de Vere was an acknowledged playwright, poet, theatrical producer, musician, dancer and literary figure of the Elizabethan era. He wrote under several pen names and also under names of living persons.

His most famous pen name was "William Shakespeare."

From the Publisher:

This book argues two very controversial positions. First, that Queen Elizabeth (the Virgin Queen) had a child in July 1548 when she was fourteen, and second, that this child was raised as Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, better known to the world by the pen name of "William Shakespeare."

The book advances the growing notion that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford was Shakespeare by showing those biographical parallels between Oxford and the body of work known as the Shakespeare canon. It further states that Shakespeare/Oxford's body of work was much larger than previously supposed, including Ovid Metamorphoses credited to Arthur Golding and Romeus and Juliet, credited to an illusive Arthur Brooke. The book also includes a new poem When Silly Bees Could Speake, which it asserts is a poem by William Shakespeare.

The book is a direct challenge to two traditions of English history: The Virgin Queen and the Bard of Stratford-upon-Avon.

From the Inside Flap:

How Elizabeth gave birth to the first of several children and how that child became to be known as the writer “William Shakespeare.”

How Queen Elizabeth conspired with her lover, Robert Dudley, to have his wife murdered.

How a child prodigy developed into the greatest literary figure ever known.

How the man who wrote, “Kill all the lawyers,” was in fact educated as a lawyer, sat in Parliament and was a judge at the trial of Mary Queen of Scots.

Why the translation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, credited to Arthur Golding and Romeus and Juliet, credited to a fictitious Arthur Brooke were in fact written by Edward de Vere.

Why there is a body of work beyond the known plays and poems currently attributed to the author known as William Shakespeare.

How a grain merchant from the rural town of Stratford-upon-Avon became mistaken as the author known as “William Shakespeare.”

How Shake-speares Sonnets reveals the relationship between the Earl of Southampton, Edward de Vere and the Queen. How the story of Edward de Vere can be found in the character of Hamlet and in Shake-speares Sonnets.

Why a portrait shows a pregnant Queen Elizabeth I.

Why a newly discovered poem, When Silly Bees Could Speake, is by “William Shakespeare.”

How the life of the Author was as exciting as the plays he wrote: his victories at jousts; his duel in the streets of London; his secret life as hidden son of Queen Elizabeth; his mistress and his wives.

How Princess Diana Spencer is a descendant of Edward de Vere, otherwise known as, William Shakespeare; therefore, a future King of England will be a descendant of the Tudor line of monarchs and “William Shakespeare.”
