  • Who Was Queen Elizabeth I?

  • The life of Queen Elizabeth I was dramatic and dangerous. Cast out of her father's court at the age of three and imprisoned at nineteen, Elizabeth was crowned queen in 1558, aged just twenty-five. A tough, intelligent woman who spoke five languages, Elizabeth ruled for over forty years and led England through one of the most prosperous periods in its history. This concise and enjoyable biography puts together the pieces of Elizabeth's life and reign for young readers.
