Elizabeth R by Glenda Jackson( visu )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in Spanish and English and held by 610 libraries worldwide
"I may not be a lion, but I am a lion's cub, and I have a lion's heart!" said Elizabeth I. Elizabeth I, known as the Virgin Queen, was the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and reigned as Queen of England from 1558-1603. This mini-series dramatizes her life from her ascension to the throne at age 25 to her death forty-four years later. Elizabeth refused to ever marry, exploiting her status as a tool in foreign policy, and using courtship as diplomacy, a theme explored at some length in this depiction. The drama brings to life her brilliant advisors, including William Cecil and Francis Walsingham, and great sailors Francis Drake and Walter Raleigh. Delves into the life of the monarch who made England into a world power, and whose time on the throne is now remembered as the "Elizabethan Age."

In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent.

These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined.
