When in fourth grade a book, Young Bess, by Margaret Irwin reached my hands. From the moment the novel was started, I was a committed Queen Elizabeth I fan.
Her qualities of intelligence, wit, courage and judgment, just to name a few, were readily revealed through my extensive reading and over the years my admiration for her increased.
The purpose of this blog is to discuss questions on topics pertinent to Elizabeth I Regina and her reign by synthesizing information from a variety of text sources and information gained by visiting historic sites.
The name of that book sounds so familiar! I might have to check that out. I’ve always enjoyed reading biographies and I wonder if I might have read that book years ago.
Looking forward to reading more here. 🙂
