Isabel I by Margaret George( Book )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Elizabeth I of England, imposing in her role as sovereign, took unprecedented political action in the Europe of the sixteenth century. The Protestant queen faced Catholics and Calvinists in her country and in many of the neighboring states, was matched against Mary Stuart and Philip II, winning by intelligence and courage, while spoiling a plot against her and arming a large army. On her deathbed she goes over the deeds for which she was feared and revered, but among these memories there is room for her loved ones, such as her faithful servant Walsingham or her lover, Robert Dudley, killed in the battle against the Armada. Years later, Lettice, the lawful wife of Dudley, emotionally and without rancor, tells her grandchildren the story of the great queen. Known as the Virgin Queen for her refusal to marry, Elizabeth has gone down in history as a ruthless ruler. Margaret George, in this story told in two voices, demolishes the myth of Elizabeth I as a cold and dispassionate woman to reveal a more intimate and, to some extent, unknown side of the woman who would be the last Tudor
