This biography of the 16th century English monarch Elizabeth I focuses on her role in establishing England as a world power. Beginning with her efforts to thwart her Catholic half-sister Mary and her eventual rise to the throne of England, the biography describes Elizabeth's decision to avoid marriage and her involvement in Dutch resistance to Spain. Ultimately, the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 was viewed an important propaganda victory in England, a symbol of God's favor.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
