A 16th-century miniature of the Tudor Queen by Isaac Oliver
ALAMY X1, GETTY X1

BOOK OF THE MONTH

Elizabeth: theForgotten Years

By John Guy

Viking, £25, 512 pages, hardback

There is so much written about the ‘Virgin Queen’, Elizabeth I, that it is a big claim by John Guy that parts of her reign are at risk of being forgotten.

The acclaimed Tudor specialist, however, argues that we need to avoid seeing Elizabeth, who ruled England and Ireland between 1558 and 1603, through contemporary sources. He picks up the story in 1583, when Elizabeth is 50, and takes readers through the well-worn stories of the Spanish Armada and the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots – and beyond. But within these familiar histories, he invites readers to see Elizabeth in a different light and recognise her for what she really was: a strong, tireless ruler.
