9781903365434: Elizabeth I: The Golden Reign of Gloriana (English Monarchs: Treasures from the National Archives)

Offering a fresh perspective on the immensely popular area of Tudor history, this first title deals with the reign of Elizabeth I, perhaps England's greatest monarch. Sixteenth-century documents, many in Elizabeth's own hand, are reproduced in full colour, sometimes for the first time. Items are included which cover all aspects of her long and eventful life - from the crises and dangers of her youth, to her relationships with key members of her court and the problematic Mary Queen of Scots, and finally to the closing years of her life as 'Gloriana'. Each key document is beautifully reproduced in a double-page spread which also includes an extended contextualising caption and a modern transcription where necessary. The original sources are woven together by a brief narrative history of the reign, fully illustrated in colour with portraits, photographs and other material from the archives.

Featured documents include:

* Elizabeth's letter to her sister, Queen Mary, written just before she was sent to the Tower, 16 March 1554
* Elizabeth's first speech as Queen, 20 November 1558
* The proclamation declaring the death sentence against Mary Queen of Scots, 4 December 1586
* The 'last letter' from the Earl of Leicester, the Queen’s favourite, to Elizabeth, 29 August 1588
